Several agencies and organizations have come forward to help the country in the fight against novel Coronavirus. Gujarat based ‘Amul’ is one such brand that is not only ensuring the supply of milk to the whole country during the lockdown but also maintaining the best hygienic practices to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
AIR correspondent reports that Amul with a huge network of around 5000 tanker drivers is collecting over 4 hundred lakh liters of milk per day from the villages and transporting it to over a thousand cities and towns across the country. Managing director of Amul cooperative RS Sodhi said right from milk collection to the delivery of milk, AMUL is taking all the precautionary sanitation measures in the wake of COVID 19.
He said to ensure the milk provided to people is hygienic and uncontaminated, all the farmers and workers have been instructed to wear masks and sanitize their hands frequently. He said all the workers are also checked by the doctors while entering the Amul premises. Mr. Sodhi thanked the center and state government for the support in ensuring an uninterrupted supply of milk during the lockdown. (AIR NEWS)
