Depending on the social structure of the village, there may be more than one agent per village. The agents collect the milk and deliver to the company.
The two parties have negotiated a price, but the company is not involved with what price the agent pays the farmers although it is slightly above what the cooperatives pay in the state. Company employees are previous dairy cooperative employees who have enormous experience in this area.
Collection areas depend on milk density and areas in which the district cooperative is less active and access to markets is efficient.
Currently, milk collected from 3 village societies and farmers within 12 district unions totals about litres per day.

Education is one of the world’s fastest growing industries. Globalization, new technologies and a knowledge economy that is dependent on high quality and effective education are rapidly transforming the sector, requiring innovative thinking to deliver performance improvement across the industry.
