Samarth Setia, Founder, Mr. Milkman, was awarded the prestigious AIFPA 75th Platinum Jubilee Award for the significant contributions he has made towards creating a platform that helps dairies get connected directly with consumers. The 75th Jubilee Celebration was organized by The All India Food Processors’ Association (AIFPA) at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi.
Established in 1943, The AIFPA has played an integral part in the Indian food industry when it comes to introduction of innovative technology, boosting the marketing infrastructure, smoothening out the logistics processes, etc. The event was graced by Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Minister for Food Processing Industries, Government of India and other notable dignitaries.
Setia has been recognized for his invaluable contributions to the dairy industry where he has introduced technology to reduce the dependency on traditional methods of keeping accounts. With 100% data security, transparency in approach and analytical inputs, dairies can now focus on production while Mr. Milkman takes care of the entire supply chain management.
On winning the award, Setia said, “It is an honour to receive this award. The Dairy Industry has a long way to go in terms of development and introduction of technology, but hopefully there will be a time soon when we can look at an organized sector, aided by automation of processes.”
