#DidYouKnow that June 1 marked World Milk Day? Did you also know that, USAID Punjab Enabling Environment Project (#PEEP) has helped establish a milk pasteurization plant in #Chakwal under its matching grants program?

On February 21, 2020, Punjab Livestock Minister Sardar Husnain Bahadar Dreshak visited GR Farms in Chakwal to witness and discuss the operations of this new milk pasteurization facility. GR Farms invested in land, building, mobile app and delivery infrastructure, while PEEP supported through the provision of the technology and equipment, specifically designed for small to medium dairy processing. Since operationalization, GR Farms has made additional investment in upgrading milk supply chain and created additional jobs bringing the total farm workforce to 22. 

The facility is based on a new energy-efficient technology and is the first of its kind in the region that is promoting preservative-free, safe, and hygienic milk with a pasteurization capacity of 3000 liters per day. To date, GR Farms has processed more than 60,000 liters of milk from this PEEP-supported facility.  The company has maintained its sales of pasteurized milk during COVID-19 by taking online orders and home deliveries through their mobile application called GRAP Market Store. 

This pasteurization facility supports the dairy sector policy reforms that the Government of Punjab is promoting under the Pure Food Regulation 2017. The initiative will attract future private sector investment in pasteurized milk supply chain and play a pivotal role in the creation of new jobs in the dairy sector of Chakwal region. #Partners4Progress
Good Luck!
