Traditional milk products represent the most prolific segment of our Indian Dairy Industry. Despite the immensity of volume of milk handled, preparation and marketing are confined to the unorganized sector.
Since most of the western-type dairy products manufactured by the organized sector of the Dairy Industry are reaching near saturation level in the existing domestic and international markets, the entire range of Indian milk products represent the most promising venue for diversification. Furthermore, Dairying has played a prominent role in strengthening our rural economy. It has been recognized as an instrument to bring about socio-economic transformation by helping the landless and marginal farmers.

For sustaining further development, Nation's Dairy Industry would have to cope with the rapid transformations that are taking place in the world economies, consequent to the GATT Agreement. International trade is being strongly regulated by the WTO guidelines.
Newer and stricter sanitary and phytosanitary standards are being formed for regulating quality parameters of the export products. Under these newly emerging circumstances, quality standards for production and processing milk cannot remain at variance with the international standards. The superior quality of dairy products coupled with concerns for environment and product safety will require significant changes in the way milk products are produced and packaged. India would have to critically assess the changing global scenario if the Nation's Dairy Industry wishes to turn the opportunities in our favour.

The needs of the market will determine the change in technology that will be required in the future.
Fast changes in socio-economic environment will drive the requirements for traditional dairy products to be processed and packaged in new forms. Publication of this book is, therefore, very timely, to provide a critical appreciation of the prospects for traditional milk products in the newly emerging world scenario. This book also features appropriate R&D interventions and newer developments in dairy processing area with focus on novel aspects of emerging technologies, which could be utilized for upgrading processes for the production of traditional milk products.
