Hassan Milk Union chairperson and JD(S) leader H.D. Revanna flagged off five trucks carrying 3.75 lakh PET bottles of milk, meant to be supplied to railway passengers, on July 1 in the presence of Shravanabelgola MLA C.N. Balakrishna.

Hassan Milk Union (HMU) has signed a memorandum of understanding with Railway Catering Services to supply PET bottles. The union has got an order to supply 3 lakh litres of milk every month, which is expected to go up to six lakh litres during the summer season. The first batch of 3.75 lakh bottles, with 75,000 litres of milk, left the union on July 1. The trucks will carry the stock to railway depots in Mumbai, Chennai, Pune and Bengaluru.

“Hassan Milk Union has got a PET bottle-making unit with a capacity to manufacture 3 lakh bottles a day. We have a network across the country, including the border areas, to supply our product. From now on, railway passengers will get PET bottles from Hassan union,” Mr. Revanna said.

The union is also making efforts to supply its products to air passengers. “We are in consultation with representatives of Air Asia, Vistara and Air India,” Mr. Revanna said.
