Mother Dairy Fruit & Vegetable — the wholly-owned subsidiary of National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) — which supplies about 30 lakh litres of milk per day along with milk products in the Delhi-NCR region, has offered a voluntary separation scheme to its employees at the Patparganj plant.
The move is expected to enhance the efficiency of the Company’s operations. The eligible employees will get a maximum benefit of up to Rs 20 lakh under the scheme. Those interested can opt for the scheme before May 31, 2021.
Presently, Mother Dairy has a workforce strength of over 3,000 employees spread across nine units, where milk and milk products are processed and manufactured and four units dealing with horticulture.
The Company’s turnover was about Rs 10,500 crore the last financial year. In addition to milk (distributed through about 1,500 milk booths), it sells fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as frozen vegetables, honey, pulses, and so on, through about 400 ‘Safal’ outlets. The Company also manufactures and markets the ‘Dhara’ brand of cooking oil.
At the beginning of 2021, Mother Dairy had decided to expand its sweets portfolio and had set itself a target of Rs 100 crore in sales from this new vertical. It had launched two new varieties of sweets — Mathura peda and mewa atta laddoo. With this addition, it now offers a total of seven traditional sweets, whereas its frozen vegetables range has about six options.
