For those of you who are advocates of organic food and healthy eating, Akshayakalpa is a familiar name. Based in Karanataka it is one of the leading producers of organic dairy products in India. A model which supports farmer entrepreneurship and innovation at the farm level, Akshayakalpa aims to help farmers produce safe and wholesome milk and milk products in a sustainable manner.
With a network of currently 200 diary farms across 100 acres, Akshayakalpa is equipped with a first of its kind automation and cloud technology that helps produce natural milk that caters to the best quality and health standards. The company plans to increase its current capacity of close to 16,500 liters of milk per day to about 1,00,000 liters per day, in the next two years.
Products: Organic and healthy
Akshayakalpa milk is truly organic considering that it is untouched by the human hand and is from healthy cows that are fed organic fodder grown on chemical free soil and and whose bodies are free from antibiotics and hormones.
Explaining Akshayakalpa’s pioneering model, Shashi Kumar, CEO and Managing Director, says “Akshayakalpa is focused on a unique model of innovation and deployment of technology right at the farms and fostering micro-entrepreneurship and profitability of farmers, to ensure higher quality of farming and production. We work with farmers for close to two years to train them and help them set up the required infrastructure and facilities at their farms before they become ‘Akshayakalpa farmers’. A rigorous procedure is followed, wherein we produce organic fodder; ensure the cows are free of antibiotics or hormones for healthy milk production and that the milk is completely untouched by human hands in the entire process of production and packaging. In fact, the milk produced goes through 14 rigorous tests starting from farm level to the packaging unit. To retain the cold chain from the farm level until it reaches the end consumer, we have installed BMC (Bulk Milk Chillers) at every milk producing unit (farm) and in the transportation vehicles which maintains the standard temperature at 4° C.”
The organizations’ offerings include five milks variants viz Farm Fresh Milk, Slim Milk, A2 Milk, A2 Slim Milk and A2 Pasteurized Milk. It also has a whole range of butter, ghee, paneer and six cheese variants.
The organization has just announced the launch of its range of lactose free milk which is supplied as fresh milk, without subjecting the milk to high heat treatment, thus differentiating it from any other lactose-free milk available in the market at present. Speaking on the occasion of the launch Dr. C. N. Manjunath, cardiologist and director of Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research said “Organic milk products contain more nutrients and healthy, unadulterated milk will benefit consumers in a number of ways, more so considering today’s lifestyles“.
