Bulk Chilling Unit


To make milk and milk products as per customers need, union has installed “Bulk Chilling Units” at societies to facilitate chilling at the place of procurement, so that milk can not be transported in canes and directly transported through insulated tankers to maintain desired quality of the milk.

Under this program, union has made Navi Pardi, Bajipura and Uchchhal Chilling Centres “Cane Free Chilling Centre” by installing Bulk Chilling Units at the milk societies and to maintain milk quality, total 149 BCUs have been installed upto July 2019, this campaign was could be made successful by providing 50 % financial aid by union and with the cooperation of societies.

Bulk Chilling Unit

To maintain & control the desirable standards of the production, to maintain the quality in the procurement & the processing of the milk & Sumul is the best example in this regard. To make milk and milk products as per international standards, milk having high quality need to be procured right from the village level; so Union has commenced "Bulk Chilling Units" having different capacities to facilitate chilling of milk at society level and could be transported by tankers to the union, and chilling of milk at the place of production which has helped to improve quality of milk; and milk of two or four times can be brought by single trip as per suitability of time, and also society can collect milk at their desired time and preserve milk by chilling. Immediate cooling of the milk leads to stop the growth of the microorganism (bacteria). So, dairy gets about 80-90% of milk having MBRT of 5-6 hours due to which we could be able to supply high quality milk in the market.
