Section V:
New Vistas for Industrialization

5.1 Process and Product Development Techniques
5.2 Management Systems for Quality and Food Safety
5.3 Export Potential in the Global Context

Traditional milk products are part of the Indian heritage, with their origin going back to the dawn of Indian civilization. They are today part and parcel of social life, festivals and ceremonies in which ghee and sweets play an important role.

In response to the changing lifestyle and emerging consumer demand for food safety and extended shelf life, the traditional methods of making Indian milk products are undergoing major transformation with the induction of technology. This has opened exciting avenues for industrialization of this vital sector.

This section highlights new vistas for modernizing the production of Indian milk products. Its focus is on techniques for process and product development, management systems for food quality and safety, and export potential. To facilitate and promote the global trade in traditional milk products, their pre-shipment export certification has become mandatory. Due coverage has been given to the implementation of this scheme by the Export Inspection Council of India.
