Atul Chaturvedi, Secretary, Animal Husbandry & Dairying, Government of India (GoI) will be joining this virtual session and interact with the stakeholders.

Dairy sector plays a critical role in linking Indian rural households to consumers in the domestic and international markets. India has been the leading producer and consumer of dairy products worldwide with a sustained growth in the availability of milk and milk products. However, with nationwide lockdown measures in place due to COVID-19 pandemic, disruption in demand-supply chains had an impact on dairy sector too. The dairy sector faced initial hiccups in form of operational challenges such as transportation of material, shortage of workforce procuring milk and workforce restrictions to name a few during lockdown. 

In the present context, the government has announced several incentives and financial measures under the economic package for development of dairy sector. Further, COVID-19 seems to provide a plethora of opportunities for the sector with emerging trends of shift in consumer preferences to dairy based protein, increased demand of immunity boosting products across value chain, record milk production & collection levels during the COVID-19 scenario in India. Thus, the tremendous potential offered by the dairy Sector in terms creation of value-addition products as a profitable business opportunity, can serve as an important tool for overall socio- economic development of the country.

Recognizing this, the main objective of this Virtual Dialogue is to bring together all key stakeholders to deliberate and suggest a future road map towards development of the Indian Dairy Sector in terms of attracting potential investments, evaluating emerging trends and opportunities, addressing ground level challenges, promoting entrepreneurship & value creation, etc. in the Evolving Dairy Business of India.
