We aim to providing secure market access to dairy farmers around our factories.
Our relationships are based on the understanding that our investments must result in long term sustainable growth and economic and social progress for the community as well.
Thus in addition to collecting milk and implementing our milk district model successfully to ensure a stable livelihood for local dairy farmers, we also support the sustainable development of our farmers by assisting them to increase milk productivity and expand their herds via
- Financial assistance
- Technical assistance regarding feeding practices, breeding, mechanisation of dairy farms and making veterinary services available through our team of around 35 veterinarians
- Promotion of sustainable agricultural practices
- Farmer training and education
Today, Nestlé works with around 100,000 milk farmers and collects over 300 million kilograms of high quality milk every year across the States of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.
Even during the blackout days of the Indian–Pakistani war in 1971, Nestlé continued to reach out to the farmers. Nestlé developed the farmers, teaching them how to look after their cattle and handle the milk. If it wasn’t for Nestlé, the Moga region would not have progressed to the extent it has today.
