G. Somashekar Reddy, president of the Karnataka Milk Federation, said here on Monday that the federation was planning to increase the production of its Good Life milk from 1.25 lakh litres a day to five lakh litres.
In an informal chat with presspersons after releasing the KMF’s six-litre jumbo curd packet at a function here, he said that the production capacity of milk processing units in Mysore, Kolar, Channarayapatna and Tumkur would be increased for achieving this target. Demand for Good Life milk was increasing. “We are getting enquires from China for this product,” he said. Mr. Reddy said that the KMF was now supplying 25,000 litres of Good Life milk a month to Singapore and 35,000 litres a day to Saudi Arabia during festive seasons.
This specially packed milk could be stored for 100 days as it had a long shelf life. The Northern and Western Commands of the defence forces had placed orders for 75 lakh litres of milk while the Southern Command had placed an indent for 12 lakh litres, he said.
The KMF was releasing the six-litre jumbo curd packet for the first time in the State in Mangalore.
