Starting from a humble beginning, Parag Milk in Lucknow has surely managed to reach the pinnacles of success.
Assuring an eased and amplified supply of milk in the city and the state, the dairy industry in Lucknow expects an expansion soon. As per reports, the advanced dairy plant of Parag Milk, Uttar Pradesh, is all set to start operation within its premises. The construction of the futuristic production plant has been completed and it would be inaugurated in a few days. Standing at Chak Ganjaria, Sultanpur Road, the latest establishment is a striking symbol of Lucknow Producers Cooperative Milk Union Limited's long driven hard-work and perseverance over the years.
New plant to accelerate dairy production in the city
Reportedly, the production had reduced in the old plant and with the commencement of this new centre, the output capacity will be doubled, reaching approximately 3 lakh litres a day. Additionally, the plant can now manufacture 2 tonnes of butter and ghee each, 1-tonne paneer, 0.5-tonne khoya, amongst other things. Also, Parag Dairy can now offer employment to around 400 individuals and is expected to bag an aggregate turnover of around ₹150 crores.
The plant is equipped with state-of-the-art machines sourced from the country and abroad, that would ensure optimum quality of milk. Amid the highlights, the plant will have a censor-based densitometer that will send back milk samples which do not qualify the set standards. This innovative device presents a perfect amalgamation of German, Italian, French and Indian technologies. In addition to this, the production centre comes with automatic facilities for checking weight & quality, pasteurisation, packing and dispatch.
The recent measures are not just focused on accelerating production but they are also aimed at improving the brand image of Parag products in the market. The authorities are trying to get a date from the Chief Minister between 12-15 February for the inaugural event.
From a humble beginning to pinnacles of success
As per reports, the General Manager of Lucknow Milk Union, Mohan Swaroop Gangwar, informed that the association was set up nearly 82 years ago. Starting out with an initial investment of ₹10 and the first-round production of 20 litres of milk, the union has made a remarkable name for itself and brought glory to the city.
Established on 23 March 1938, the entrepreneurial venture grew quickly and its products became an inseparable part of the households soon. Consequently, the first plant was set up in 1963 at Jopling Road.
Having served the Lucknowites for over six decades now, the brand has become a celebrated part of the state's local dairy industry. With the materialisation of the recent project, the milk business in the city would soon witness a boom, making ways to all corners of the country.
One of the most interesting features of Parag Milk is that it is available for retail online too. What better thing than to order your favourite dairy products from the comfort of your homes? So, if you haven't tried their range of products, you must do it soon!
