At Mother Dairy, MBA students learned about processing procedure of milk, which is done through the state-of-the-art microprocessor technology which integrates and completely automates all functions of milk processing and ensures high product quality, reliability and safety. The students got a know-how on various stages of milk processing, which are given below:
- Milk collection from farmers
Raw mixed milk is collected, tested, chilled and stored below 4 degree celsius.
- Milk Transportation
Raw mixed milk is transported through insulated road tankers.
Raw mixed milk undergoes 23 stringent quality tests. It is tested for:
Free from contaminants
- Receiving Dock
Raw mixed milk is unloaded and stored in stainless steel insulated silos below 6C before processing.
It involves application of centrifugal force which means rotation of milk at high speed(at 6100 rpm) to remove foreign matter like fine dust particles.
- Homogenization and Fortification
Vitamin A is added milk. Then milk is subjected to very high pressure to break the fat globules, therefore fat is mixed evenly in every drop of milk. This makes the milk easily digestible, good for tea, coffee and curd making.
Kills pathogenic bacteria by heating the milk to 72 degree celsius for 16 seconds and then immediately cooled to 4 degree celsius. Pasteurization, unlike boiling does not affect the nutritional value of the milk.
In adherence to Food safety standard regulation, milk is processed to ensure a standard composition of fat and solids.
- Filling Dock
After milk is processed, milk is either filled in tankers or packed in polypacks and then distributed in the market.
