India has been the leading producer and consumer of dairy products worldwide since 1998 with a sustained growth in the availability of milk and milk products. Dairy activities form an essential part of the rural Indian economy, serving as an important source of employment and income. India also has the largest bovine population in the world. However, the milk production per animal is significantly low as compared to the other major dairy producers.

On account of this, the Indian dairy industry holds tremendous potential for value-addition and overall development. The dairy industry in India is the largest globally, accounting for 23 percent of global milk production. The industry contributes 5 percent to the national economy and directly supports more than 8 crore farmers.
