Presented at the 42nd Annual General Body Meeting of NCDFI

Honourable members,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to the forty second annual general meeting of NCDFI.  May I now present before you the Annual Report and the Audited Statement of Accounts of your federation for the year 2011-12.

Report on Operations:

During the year 2011-12, the NCDFI continued to coordinate supplies of milk, milk products and frozen semen doses. The highlights include:

Coordination with Ministry of Defence

Fresh Milk: NCDFI coordinated supply of about 7.2 crore litres of liquid milk valued at about ` 217 crore from the cooperative dairies to about 184 Defence units which include ASC Depots, Air Force Stations and Military Farms under the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

Butter Fresh: NCDFI coordinated supply of about 400 MT Butter Fresh valued at about ` 11 crore from the cooperative dairies to about 138 Defence units which include ASC Depots, Air Force Stations and Military Farms under the MoD.

UHT Milk: NCDFI coordinated supply of about 3.4 crore litres of UHT (Tetrapak) Milk to 67 Defence units in Eastern, Western, Northern and Southern Commands valued at about ` 141 crores.

Milk Products: During the year, supply of about 2,982 MT of milk products valued at about ` 60 crores was coordinated by the NCDFI on behalf of its members to the MoD. The products supplied include 1,023 MT Whole Milk Powder, 495 MT Butter Tinned, 192 MT Ghee, 300 MT Cheese Tinned and 972 MT Sweetened Condensed Milk.

 NCDFI also coordinated supply of 74 MT of milk products valued at about ` 1.5 crores to Indo-Tibetan Border Police.

 Thus your federation coordinated milk and milk product supplies worth of about ` 431 crores during the year 2011-12.

Milk and milk product supplies to IRCTC

In July 2009 Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) entered into an agreement with the NCDFI to procure milk and milk products of NCDFI member organizations. The agreement is extended periodically and valid till December 2012. During the year 2011-12, many member organizations have supplied milk and milk products to IRCTC base kitchens and pantry cars under this arrangement.

Marketing of Frozen Semen Doses

With a view to make available good quality semen doses to the milk producers in the country, NCDFI has been functioning as ‘carrying and forwarding agency’ of Frozen Semen Doses (FSDs) and embryos produced by Sabarmati Ashram Gaushala, Bidaj (SAGB) and Animal Breeding Centre, Salon (ABCS). Both these organisations function under the technical guidance of National Dairy Development Board (NDDB).

The Central Monitoring Committee constituted by the Government of India awarded ‘A’ Grade to both SAGB and ABCS sperm stations. Both SAGB and ABCS are the most modern Semen Production Stations in the country with most sophisticated semen processing equipment to produce frozen semen adhering to stringent quality control tests. Both these farms are accredited with ISO 9001:2000 certification for production, processing and supply of FSDs.

During the year 2011-12, NCDFI coordinated sale of 155 lakh FSDs produced by SAGB and ABCS which is 15.6% higher compared to the previous year.
