MILMA, the Kerala Co- operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd, is set to join hands with the Netherlands to produce nutritious, high-quality ‘organic milk’ – without using synthetic feed or antibiotics while rearing the cattle. As many as five milk societies in Mullankolli, in high range Wayanad, have been identified for implementing the ambitious project, which will begin soon after getting the final clearance from the Dutch government.
Organic milk will be produced by rearing cattle in a thoroughly natural environment, without giving them any synthetic feed or antibiotics. K T Thomas, Managing Director of MILMA in Malabar region, which manages dairy co-operative societies in six northern districts of the state, said an MoU is expected to be signed in this regard soon. “We are planning to implement organic milk project with the support of the Netherlands government,” he told PTI.
