Dairy Production In India

India is with highest livestock populations within the world, it accounts 500th of the buffaloes and 200th of the world‘s cows population, most of that are milch cows and milch buffaloes. India‘s dairy farm industry is taken into account together of the most productive development business in the post-Independence era. India is the largest producer of milk with around 133 Million MT of milk production in 2013. This milk is produced at around 75 million dairy farms with the captive holding of two cows per farm with a mean yield of around one thousand liters per day. Out of this virtually half, the milk is consumed at the production level and balance involves the market for direct sales and process. The quantitative relation of unorganized to the organized sector in milk procurement and trading is 60:40.

The performance of the Indian dairy farm sector throughout the past 3 decades has been very spectacular. Milk production grew at a mean annual rate of 4.57 % throughout the 1970s, 5.68 % throughout the 1980s, and 4.21 % throughout the 1990s. The per-capita accessibility of milk was 128 gms in 1980-81 gradually enhanced to 232 gms in 2004-05. Despite, it’s being the biggest milk producer in the world, India's per capita accessibility of milk remains lower than the recommendations (minimum nutritional requirement of 280 gm per day) of ICMR. Many factors have contributed to the raised milk production within the country. First, milk and milk product have cultural significance within the Indian diet and became a very important supply of protein in the diet. The socioeconomic and demographic changes, rising financial gain levels, urbanization and ever-changing food habits and lifestyles have conjointly strengthened growth in demand for dairy farm product. Further, on the availability side, technological progress within the production and processing sectors, institutional factors, and infrastructure played a crucial role.

Food Safety New Technologies

International Conference on “Food Safety and Health” is going to held during August 30-31, 2018 in Dubai, UAE. The theme of the conference is “Highlights of latest Advancements in Food safety research and Accentuating Current & Emerging Food Safety issues”.

Nanotechnology and Food Packaging

Food packaging technology is incessantly evolving in response to the growing challenges in modern society. Active and intelligent packaging systems are two innovative branches of the packaging field, which permit the advancement of food product with extended shelf life, better food quality and safety.
Scientific works are mentioned with a lot of emphasis on the utilization of technology for the development of recent packaging materials with improved mechanical, barrier and antimicrobial properties and on the utilization of bio-based nanocomposites as some way to enhance the technological properties of green materials, thus substituting typical non-biodegradable petroleum-based plastic packaging materials.

Current approch in nanoscience and technology intend unique and innovative applications within the food business. Technology exposed to be an economical methodology in several fields, notably the food business and also the area of functional foods.Although as is the circumstance with t…

Risk analysis through HACCP

The safety of food has been advanced considerably by the introduction and implementation of the Hazard Analysis of critical control point (HACCP) conception. HACCP provides a scientific theoretical framework for distinguishing food hazards and focusing efforts on the correct functioning of key food production, food process and marketing steps. The quality of the pre-harvest, harvest, and post-harvest environments create it impossible to regulate all potential sources of food contamination. Efforts at prevention and control are enforced throughout the food production and food process system. Researchers are frequently sorting out a far better understanding of the pathogens and their interaction with the surroundings, resulting in improved control technologies. However, at constant time, the pathogens continue to evolve, and human actions generally drive that evolution. Even little environmental changes will have unforeseen or maybe unpredictable impact on microbial populations. Improve…
