On March 16, Parshottam Rupala, who is the Union Minister for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry, and Dairying, will open the conference and expo. On March 18, Amit Shah, who is the Union Minister for Home and Cooperation, will be the chief guest at the Indian Dairy Summit.

‘The Dairy Industry Conference is the biggest conference of the $10 billion Indian dairy industry,’ said RS Sodhi, President of the Indian Dairy Association. At the conference, people will talk about how India can make the most of its huge opportunities and deal with the problems it faces. The fact that the conference is happening in Gujarat again after 27 years makes it even more special.

Meenesh Shah, Chairman of the NDDB, said about the event, ‘India’s journey has been phenomenal. It started out small, but now it makes almost a quarter of the world’s milk. We want to be the dairy of the world, but we can only do that if dairying is sustainable and gives our customers a way to stay healthy, and gives millions of dairy farmers a way to make a living.

During the three-day conference and trade show, the latest technologies for making, storing, processing, and packaging milk will also be shown. There will also be awards in different categories for people and organizations that have helped the dairy industry grow.

In 2021 and 2022, India made more than 220 million tonnes of milk. By 2047, milk production is expected to reach 628 million tonnes. This is because there will be more people, more money, and a bigger focus on nutrition, all of which will increase the demand for dairy products.
