New Delhi: In the state of Uttar Pradesh some industries are growing faster like; food processing, dairy, sugar, manufacturing, and healthcare. The dairy industry in Uttar Pradesh is developing in a very tremendous way.

Investment proposals worth around Rs 500 crore in the dairy sector are expected to play a vital role in shaping the lives of rural people as a major source of employment and income generation.

With the aim of doubling farmers’ income from dairying, the Yogi-led government in UP is working tirelessly to ensure utmost priority is extended to dairy development in the state.

At the third groundbreaking ceremony (GBC-3) held in Lucknow on June 3, projects worth Rs 482 crore were presented in this sector.

This includes projects of- Duss Bareilly of Rs 80.3 crore in Bareilly, Creamy Foods Limited of Rs 60 crore in Bulandshahr, CP Milk and Food Products private limited of Rs 118 crore in Gorakhpur, and 2 projects — CP Milk and Food Products private limited worth Rs 100 crore and DUSS Lucknow worth Rs 124 crore in state capital Lucknow.

The cooperative system is aimed to provide employment and services in society with the participation of workers and markets. This sector plays an important role in achieving food security, reducing poverty, generating employment opportunities for women, and providing a regular source of income for rural households.

It may be noted that crop production employs the rural workforce for 90 to 120 days, but dairy provides alternative employment opportunities throughout the 365 days of the year.

Strengthening cooperative milk business across areas where agriculture is less practiced, will help generate alternative employment opportunities, especially for women and economically disadvantaged communities.

As per the intentions of the Chief Minister, a flourishing dairy sector in Uttar Pradesh will help it become self-reliant and will also contribute to doubling farmers’ income.
