Aims at bridging the gap in chilling infrastructure for enhanced milk quality and sustainability
Gujarat-headquartered dairy-tech solution provider Prompt Group launched ten Solar MilkoChill units (instant milk chillers), a groundbreaking innovation in the dairy industry, in the Sirohi district of Rajasthan.
The state-of-the-art Solar MilkoChill units have been installed at Asha Mahila Milk Producers Company Limited with financial support from the World Wide Fund (WWF) India.
The critical factor affecting milk quality is the time lag between milking and the first chilling. Milk needs to be chilled at the earliest to arrest bacterial growth and retain its quality. Prompt’s Solar MilkoChill unit makes it possible to chill milk at its source, thereby reducing spoilage, retaining quality, increasing shelf life, and hence increasing farmers’ income.
Speaking on the occasion, Shridhar Mehta, Managing Director of Prompt Group, said, “Our Solar MilkoChill unit is a pioneering product that marks a significant leap in improving milk quality through innovative solar-powered chilling technology. The product offers a viable and complementary alternative to the existing bulk milk cooler solutions and has the potential to revolutionize the dairy industry. It reflects our commitment to drive positive change in the dairy industry and aligns with our vision for ushering in sustainable dairy solutions.”
The Solar MilkoChill unit offers an ingenious solution to address the challenges posed by erratic power supply, which is especially crucial as dairy operations expand to more villages.
