This will also contribute to building consumer confidence in dairy cooperative brands. The Agriculture Minister said that it is aimed at bringing about process improvement in the entire value chain from producer to the consumers to ensure availability of quality milk and milk products. This initiative does not propose any new/additional system for Food Safety and Quality Management but lays down the processes required for ensuring quality and safety.

It has members from the DADF and Managing Directors of four Federations representing the regions. The Management Committee also has a representative of FSSAI and two experts in dairying. He said that interested Federations/Cooperative dairies/Educational institutions/Govt. dairy units may apply for the Quality Mark. Only dairy units that adopt food safety and quality management systems for milk and milk products and adhere to parameters given the guidelines of Quality Mark are eligible.
