Our Plant

Liquid Milk Packing Plant

Continuing its rich legacy, Umang Dairies established a state-of-the-art plant in 1994, located in the heart of the milk bowl- Gajraula (U.P), which is about 110 kilometers east of Delhi. In keeping with the high quality standards of the JK Group, Umang Dairies insisted on working with the latest equipment from leading global suppliers such as Gaulin (USA) and Hassia (Germany) with other major equipment being indigenously designed by Alpha Laval. Evolving over time, our plant today has the total milk handling capacity of 11.5 lakh litres per day, of which the drying plant can process 4.5 lakh litres per day while the liquid milk packing plant can process and pack 6 lakh litres per day.

Drying Plant

Since hygiene has always been of utmost importance to the company, a strong vigil is maintained across the entire manufacturing process. The company with a vision of a greener and brighter tomorrow, has adhered to all the environmental standards applicable to sensitive areas; and has taken up the usage of agricultural by-products as boiler- fuel in order to optimize waste utilization and reduce the dependence on fossil fuels. This pro- environment attitude is what has always distinguished the JK Group from its competitors. Our dedicated team of professionals and experts left no stone unturned to make UDL the first private sector dairy plant to be ISO certified. It is one of the first dairy processing companies in India to have received ISO 9002 certification. Today, all the hard work has paid off and UDL stands to be an ISO 9001 : 2008, ISO 14001 : 2004, HACCP, FSSC 22000 : 2011 and OHSAS 18001 : 2007 certified company.

Milk Collection

Over the years, relentless effort has gone into building up 300 village collection centers. Extreme caution is taken at these village level collection centers to ensure that the quality of milk collected meets the stringent norms, which is why at the break of dawn; we collect fresh, raw milk directly from over 25,000 farmers in these villages. This process is repeated twice a day in order to keep the freshness of the milk intact and after a thorough check, the milk is sent to the chilling centers located near the village centers.

To ensure that fresh milk is collected, our vehicles cover each collection centre twice every day. Our farmers, who supply us freshly procured milk from well-fed cattle, have been as much a priority to us as our customers and thus, as part of our CSR, value added services through our in-house team are provided to them.

A number of community welfare programs are undertaken at village level such as seminars on quality of life, free health check up for cattle, free cattle vaccination in order to keep the cattle healthy and disease free, free veterinary care, supply of high grade cattle feed to farmers at subsidized rates and advice on clean milk production etc. To ensure that there is no compromise on collection of quality milk, a very large team of dedicated employees work relentlessly in deep interiors of West U.P. To ensure that the highest quality milk reaches our plant and we serve our customers right, the company has installed several chillers at the village level. A fully developed R&D centre constantly works for improving systems of milk collection, processing and product upgradation.
