The Indian Dairy market is bifurcated as unorganised and organised. In the unorganised dairy market, the milk is sold by means such as milkmen and vendors. These milkmen collect raw milk directly from the farmers and sell in the market. In the organised sector, on the other hand, cooperatives and private dairies set up efficient channel of milk procurement and distribution. In this manner, raw milk is collected from the farmers, after which it is processed, packed and distributed to various channels. The Indian dairy market was dominated by the unorganised sector, however, due to changing socio-economic patterns the focus is shifting towards developing the organised sector.
