Oxfordians had a trip to Milma Kozhikode Dairy situated at Peringolam, Kundamangalam in Kozhikode. Malabar Regional Co-operative Milk Producers’ Union (MRCMPU) Limited is a Union of more than 1000 village level dairy co-operative societies located in the six northern districts of Kerala State.
Kerala Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (KCMMF) or Milma was formed under the National Dairy Programme ‘Operation Flood’, in 1980. Its headoffice is in Thiruvananthapuram. In the early 1980s, Kerala relied primarily on the neighboring states for its milk supply. But after the emergence of Milma, Kerala has become almost self-sufficient in milk production. In order to make the students know about the history of this ‘milk revolution’ and understand about the importance of dairy farming, The Oxford School conducted this field trip to Milma Malabar Dairy.
