While the outbreak of novel coronavirus has impacted every sector, there is an increase in demand for specific dairy products. Pandemics are scary, and there is little doubt that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting every aspect of our lives. There is currently no vaccine to boost your immune system and prevent COVID-19. So, it is essential to keep your immune system in top condition for fighting this infection through healthy eating.
People are advised to boost their immune system, and the recommendations include consuming dairy products. During his address to the nation on Tuesday, the Prime Minister announced a complete lockdown for 21 days. Therefore, people began to rush to the grocery store to stock up on necessities such as milk, and dairy farms are seeing an increase in the business.
The sale of dairy products has seen an almost 20 percent rise. Indians have been consuming dairy products in loose form. Increasing health & safety concerns has shifted consumption from loose milk towards value-added products like flavored milk, cheese, curd, etc. Demand for packed milk such as ultra-heat treated (UHT) milk, skimmed milk powder, etc. have seen a 25-30 percent increase amid coronavirus outbreak.
The dairy industry makes up a significant portion of the economy. With the consumption dynamics, the dairy industry faces many challenges in sourcing and logistics. Another challenge for dairy producers is to closely monitor the health and well-being of their employees.
At Shreemant, we will devote our resources to the best of our ability to ensure the supply chain is seamless. To maintain the requisite hygiene at all levels, right from procurement to processing, logistics, and retail network, we are continually monitoring our operations to ensure a safe and adequate supply of dairy products.
