Mother Dairy, India’s leading dairy player, has pledged to distribute 101,000 glasses of milk to the underprivileged on the occasion of National Milk Day 2022, marking the 101st birth anniversary of Dr Verghese Kurien, also known as the father of India’s White Revolution.
 
The birth anniversary of Dr Kurien, the Father of White Revolution in India, is celebrated as          the National Milk Day every year across the country. His "Billion-Litre Idea" – Operation Flood – is the world's largest dairy development programme that made dairy farming as India's largest self-sustaining industry and the largest rural employment provider. It made India the world's largest milk producer from a milk- deficient nation. Mother Dairy was established in 1974 during this noble initiative of Operation Flood, under the able leadership of Dr Kurien.
 
Calling out for participation of its consumers and well-wishers, Mother Dairy has also rolled out a digital game – #OneGlassMilk Game, which can be played on https://www.motherdairy.com/OneGlassMilk/. Through this, the company is calling out everyone, seeking support from across the country, to join them in the movement and help them achieve the goal.
 
Talking about the initiative,  Manish Bandlish, MD, Mother Dairy, said, “We are indebted to Dr Kurien for his vision and making India the largest producer of milk. His contribution to the growth of the Indian dairy industry cannot be expressed in words. We began this initiative in 2019 with an aim to spread the importance of milk and milk products, urging public-at-large to promulgate the practice of offering one glass milk as a source of nourishment.”
 
The company will distribute 101,000 glasses of milk in collaboration with leading NGOs – The Akshaya Patra Foundation and Apna Ghar – across Delhi NCR.
