The Department of Economics of the IIS (deemed to be) University organised an Industrial visit to RCDF, Jaipur, on 6th October 2022. A total of 35 students (UG and PG) along with one faculty member of the department visited the industry. This visit mainly focused on understanding the recent trends in the largest milk industry of Rajasthan. The students tried to learn the work culture of the plant.

A brief introductory session regarding the industry and plant was conveyed by an officer, who stated that in March 1975, a small step was taken to fulfil the objective of making India self-sufficient in the milk production. To ensure the same, Jaipur Dairy was registered under Cooperative Act,1965 to start its operation in the Jaipur District. Rajasthan cooperative Dairy Federation (RCDF) was setup in 1977. It started with 25 DCS (Dairy Cooperative Societies).

The officer also informed that the objective of RCDF is to carry out activities for promoting production, procurement, processing and marketing of milk & milk products under ‘SARAS’ brand. He explained about various facts regarding the plant such as its initial and current handling capacity, it’s growth, procedure or production process and its various products such as milk, curd, lassi, ghee, chhach, paneer and so on. He also told that the milk is the major product for SARAS which comes under four variants- Double Toned, Toned, Standard and Gold (depending on the fat content).

Later, the students were taken inside the building to get a first-hand look at the automated work done at the dairy which ensures safety and cleanliness. They were shown large canisters used for storing and measuring milk. The efficient and optimal use of the advanced technology used at APS(Aspecting Packaging Station) amazed the students.


After the tour, students also got to know that dairy has a wastage treatment plant which helps in reusing the waste milk in making the cattle feed.


Overall, the visit helped them in understanding the recent market trends of milk industry, various strategies adopted by the company and the overall economic scenario related with the market. The students had a wonderful and an informative experience of visiting the industry.
