PERFORMANCE

The operating profit in the year areRs.14.09 crores as against loss ofRs.12.38 crores last year. The Companys exports areRs.45.83 crores against? 95.26 crores in the previous year. During the year 2009-10, due to the delayed monsoon and deficit rainfall, the milk season started on a poor note. The milk availability was below expectations. Later on, the availability improved but it had an impact on the raw milk prices. The demand for companys products remained firm in the domestic market but the margins remained under pressure as the rise in selling prices was not in proportion to the increase in milk prices.

On the exports front, the market remained difficult. The Global recession that started in the middle of the last fiscal, continued in the year of 2009-10. The first two quarters of the financial year were the worst hit which started recovering in the later part of the year. Due to continued recession impact on demand in the international market, Unit II operations were affected. This resulted into lower exports of nutritional ingredients i.e. acid casein and rennet casein during this year.

Your Company entered into a manufacturing contract with a Food Major for supply of Set Curd (Plain) in their Brand for Delhi Metro and other towns of Punjab and Haryana. The commercial production commenced in November 2009. The product has been well accepted in the market.

CURRENT OPERATIONS

The first half of the current year 2010-11 continued to be difficult. The Company achieved Net sales and other Operating Income of? 193.43 crores as againstRs.159.75 crores during the same period last year. The export sales areRs.24.89 crores as againstRs.11.99 crores during the same period last year. The domestic market products sale remained firm but the export volumes remained much lesser than expected. The exports continued to remain weak due to the unremunerative selling price against the cost of raw milk and the cost of production. Further, the strengthening of Indian Rupee against the US Dollar has also adversely impacted the companys export operations.

Currently, the milk availability has started improving due to the onset of flush season. As the rainfall have been good this year, it is anticipated that the over all availability of milk in the coming flush season shall be better than the previous year.
