This year's conference, inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, focused on the topic of "Dairy for Nutrition and Livelihood." With an estimated 1500 participants from all over the world, the conference saw leaders, policymakers, experts, and farmers from the Indian and worldwide dairy sectors deliberating on how the industry might help feed the world's population safely and sustainably.
The dairy sector is one of the strongest components of India’s vast FMCG industry, both reflecting and continuing its journey as a global market leader. Our world-leading filling technology and wide range of specialized aseptic cartons in flexible sizes and formats, made using sustainably sourced materials, are uniquely positioned to help in the proliferation of India’s dairy journey. According to a statement from the PMO’s office, the Indian dairy industry is founded on a cooperative model that especially caters to small and marginal dairy producers, particularly women, who are the real leaders of the dairy sector. To this end, the government has taken several measures to further reinforce the dairy sector, as a result of which, India's milk output has increased by more than 44% during the past eight years.
