Visit of Australian Delegation to Punjab CBIP
On 14th January 2015, a delegation of eighteen members from Australia visited J K Trust ILD Centre at Majri Jattan Village in Ropar district to explore the business opportunity in dairy sector in India. The team comprised of Trade Commissioner Mr. Mark Morle, Mr. Wiham, Mr. Emashan, Mr. Ranjan, Mr. Bery Sharma, Dr. Margret and Mr. Chebal. Dr. Shyam Zawar (CEO), Mr. Rajesh Patel (RPM), Mr. Punam Sain (Project Manager) along with the Gopals of Ropar, Mohali and Ludhiana attended the meeting.
The objective of the delegate’s visit was to get a first-hand experience of the traditional small scale dairy farming operation, the backbone of India’s white revolution success story; at the same time allowing the delegation to appreciate the dichotomy of its socio-economic impact on the marginal farmers and its “obsoleteness” and challenges in the face of the growing market demand.
