OPERATIONS

The Revenue from operations decreased to Rs 18,898 Lac during the year as compared to Rs 25,114 Lac in the previous year, even though production of products increased by 3% - from 10,289 MTs in 2014-15 to 10,588 MTs in 2015-16. Significantly lower international prices of milk and, as a consequence, of Skimmed Milk Powder made Indian exports of Skimmed Milk Powder unviable. This resulted in over supply of Skimmed Milk Powder in domestic market and un-remunerative prices. To counter the situation, Company took a conscious decision to cut sale of commodity products like Skimmed Milk Powder and Ghee and go for value added Job Work for other companies. This proved more remunerative and the Company could maintain production levels with marginal decline in Profitability. As a result operating profit (PBIDT) stood at Rs.1516 lac compared to Rs.1661 lac in the previous year.

Company was able to retain its market share in Dairy Creamer segment with its brands WHITE MAGIK, DAIRY TOP & MILK STAR. Dairy Top continues to maintain its leadership in the mid segment of dairy creamers. Single serve sachets of 3 and 5 gms of White Magik have found greater acceptance by Hospitality, HORECA segment and Institutional buyers like Jet Airways, Indian Railways and Defence Services.

Test Marketing of Doodz Flavoured Milk in upcountry markets in the previous year got encouraging response. Company has widened its supply base to a number of States in East and North-East. Company maintained its leadership position in Pre-Mix for tea and coffee vending machines.

Company continued to invest in updating its Plant and R&D facilities. Progress on putting up a captive power generation Plant is on track. Commercial production is likely to take place in beginning of July 2016. This will significantly lower power and fuel costs, besides ensuring uninterrupted power supply to the Plant.

Company plans to increase production capacity of Drying Plant from present 4.5 lac litres per day to 5.5 lac litres per day. Increased capacity is likely to be available for commercial production from October/November 2016.

Liquid Milk Plant

Your Company operates and manages a facility owned by another Company to process and pack Liquid Milk in poly pouches for Mother Dairy, under a long term agreement. Capacity utilization improved to 93.7% from 89.6% in 2014-15.

INDUSTRY SCENARIO

DAIRY INDUSTRY IN INDIA

India continues to be the top producer of milk globally. It is expected that India will continue with its leadership position - milk production in India is growing on a faster clip than global growth. Currently Indian share in global milk production is 18.5% which is expected to go up to 21% in 2020. In 2014-15 Indian milk production stood at 146.3 MMTs against 137.69 MMTs during 201314 - a growth of nearly 6%. Historically, milk production during last two decades has been growing at a rate of 3.5 to 4%. (Source: Economic Survey 2014-15 by Government of India, Ministry of Agriculture and Farmer Welfare)

All over the world, people fulfill approximately 13% of their protein requirement from milk and milk products. Since ancient times milk has been considered in India as an elixir for good health. Overall consumption of milk and milk products is projected to grow consistently - value added dairy products are currently growing at 15 to 16% and this trend is expected to continue. Commodity products are expected to grow 5 to 6%.

Contribution of dairy industry to India''s agricultural GDP is highest amongst all agricultural products and stood at 22%. India has the largest bovine population in the world with a large capacity to process 98.3 million litres of milk per day. Figures show that out of every rupee spent by consumer on milk, farmer gets about 70/ 75 paise. This is significantly higher than what it is in countries like US, Europe and New Zealand where the share of milk producer is less than 40% of the consumer spend.

OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS

Opportunities

(i) With presence of large foreign dairies in India, demand of value added milk products has gone up. Growth in milk demand is currently reckoned at 6% YOY compared to earlier 4%. This pace seems to be sustainable.

(ii) With some large corporates entering dairy segment, structure of dairy industry is moving from unorganized sector to organized sector. According to Rabo Bank Study, nearly Rs.15,000 crores is likely to be invested in India in next 5 years.

(iii) Milk is a preferred source of protein in India. Younger generation looks for protein rich food. Milk and milk products are, therefore, likely to play a significant role to meet this demand.

(iv) India is the largest producer of buffalo milk which is a preferred variety of milk for making certain type of cheese. It offers a good export opportunity for Indian cheese made of buffalo milk.

(v) From every litre of milk processed nearly 40% is fat - butter and ghee. Recent studies in US & Europe show that contrary to common belief that ghee consumption adds to obesity and consequently cardio-vascular and neurological diseases, it is beneficial to health if taken in light quantity. Cholesterol is no more considered a risk factor for heart diseases. This is likely to spur consumption of butter and ghee in a significant manner.

Threats

(i) With pressure on available land from food crops, urbanization and industrialization, there is hardly any scope of increasing cultivation of cattle feed.

(ii) With increase in education level of young farmers, there is a tendency among the young folk to prefer white collar jobs over conventional dairy farming profession.

(iii) Due to fragmented dairy farming in India, traceability is an issue with importers from USA and EU.

(iv) Present embargo by Govt. of India on import of high milk yielding cows acts as a deterrent to improve productivity of milch cows.

GROWTH OUTLOOK

Both milk production as well as demand is growing at a healthy pace of about 6% YOY. Higher rate of growth is likely to be witnessed in value added products (about 15%). Commodity is expected to grow at about 5% YOY. Greater shift is likely to be seen in favour of Western Dairy Products and Packaged Milk. Packaged milk will progressively replace loose milk. A pre-requisite to building an attractive product portfolio is to have a strong supply backbone, based on direct procurement of milk from farmers.

EXPANSION AND MODERNIZATION PLANS

Company wishes to become a significant player in Dairy space.

Besides modernization of Plant and R&D facilities, Company is planning to expand production facility of Drying Plant from present 4.5 lac litres per day to 5.5 lac litres per day. Expanded capacity is likely to be operative by October/ November 2016.

Company is also planning to launch some new products. Work on this exercise is progressing satisfactorily and some of the products should hit the market in the first half of FY 2016-17.

RISKS & CONCERNS

(i) Government - both Central and States - have increased their focus on ensuring safe food products, including milk products to the consumer. This is a step in right direction. However, due to impractical view taken by Food Inspectors as also lack of adequate testing equipments in Government Laboratories, lot of fear and confusion has been created in the minds of Industry as well as consumers. This has to be addressed by Government by taking pragmatic approach. FSSAI seems to be alive to the problem and have recently taken some steps which are likely to address the problem.

(ii) Nearly 50% space is occupied by co-operative sector for whom profit making is not the objective. Opposite this, Private sector has to service capital employed.

(iii) Due to fragmented nature of dairy farming in India, milk cannot be guaranteed to be free from anti-biotics and pesticides.

RAW MATERIAL SECURITY

Company is sanguine about the fact that to sustain a value added product portfolio, it is highly imperative to have captive milk bank where milk is collected direct from the farmers. As it is, Company is one of the few ones who have more than two decades old village level collection system under which milk is collected from nearly 300 villages comprising of about 12000 farmers.

HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT/ INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS

The Company recognizes the contribution and importance of its employees in today''s highly competitive environment and has been systematically developing their skills and empowering its employees. People are encouraged to take on new roles and expand their horizons. Training needs at different levels are identified through Performance Appraisal System and need based training programmes are regularly organized for all level of employees. In order to encourage leadership and problem solving qualities among workmen, the Company has helped establish Quality Circles. A number of job rotations are done to enhance employees'' skills as well as to enrich their work experience.

Milk production has been growing at a steady rate of 3.5 to 4% per year against which the domestic demand of milk is growing at over 6% per year; hence shortage of milk and higher price. However, the Company was able to pass on the major part of increase in milk cost in the selling price of end-products. According to food inflation numbers, the milk prices have gone up by 22% during the year 2010-11.

Better capacity utilization during the year, however, helped the Company in reducing its losses as compared to previous year.

The Company continues to maintain its leadership position in Premixes for Tea & Coffee vending machines.
