HARYANA is one of the most progressive states of Republic of India. In the domain of dairy development it is well known for its productive milch cattle particularly the 'Murrah' Buffaloes and Haryana Cows. The economy of the state is predominantly based on agriculture. People rear and breed cattle as a subsidiary occupation.

The essence of various programmes launched in the State has been to adopt the Anand pattern of Milk Co-operatives. Under this system, all the functions of dairying like milk procurement, processing and marketing are controlled by the Milk Producers themselves. It has three tier system comprising milk Producers Societies at the village level, Milk Producers Co-operative Union at the district level and the state Milk Federation as an apex body at the State level.

The Haryana Dairy Development Co-operative Federation Ltd. registered under Haryana Co-operative Societies Act came into existence on April 1,1977. Its authorized share capital is Rs.4000 lacs. It was established with the primary aim to promote economic interests of the milk producers of Haryana particularly those belonging to weaker sections of the village community by procuring and processing milk into milk products and marketing thereof by itself or through its unions. In furtherance of the above objects, the Federation undertakes a number of activities such as establishment of milk plants, marketing of VITA BRAND milk products of the Milk Unions. It also extends technical guidance to the Unions in all spheres of personnel, technical, marketing and financial management as well as makes them quality conscious, through use of modern methods of laboratory testing of various products.

Quality - VITA the Hallmark of Quality
As part of stringent quality measures, milk required for processing VITA products is procured from Dairy Cooperative Societies only. It is ensured that the milk is transported to chilling centres and plants in clean and sterilized milk cans as quickly as possible. All quality measures as per Standard of Bureau of Indian Standards/Agmark are being applied before the products are marketed. Well-equipped laboratories are functioning in the chilling centres and milk plants to maintain ideal quality standards. VITA is the endorsement of quality, a commendation we are Proud of.

  • The village level societies collect milk from milk producers and sell it to Milk Union. Earlier Milk Unions were selling milk to the plants run by the Federation. Since 1-4-92 the Federation has leased out the Plants to the Milk Unions. So now Milk Unions process the milk and convert the same into products at Milk Plants taken on lease by them from Federation. The sale of Milk and Milk products is undertaken by milk unions through distributors, milk booths & retailers.
