AGARTALA:

Moving at par with the recommendations of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), the Gomati Co-operative Milk Producers’ Limited today launched its fortified milk with Vitamin ‘A’ and ‘D’ in the state of Tripura in collaboration with World Bank, TINI – TATA Trust, National Diary Development Board (NDDB).

Tripura Industrial Development Corporation Limited (TIDCL) Chairman Tinku Roy along with the BJP MLA Ratan Chakraborty, Ram Prasad Pal and others launched this fortified milk in a function here at Agartala Town Hall today.

FSSAI rolled out recommendations for fortifying Skimmed Milk, Double Toned Milk, Toned Milk and standardized milk with 770 IU of Vitamin A and 550 IU of Vitamin D per liter of Milk. The fortification will help provide 15-30 % of the daily requirement for these Vitamins.

Taking this initiative, forward development partners like TATA Trusts have supported the states like Jharkhand, Assam and Tripura to start the fortification of their Milk variants.

TATA Trusts has also collaborated with World Bank and NDDB to take this initiative forward in the Cooperative sector planning to fortify about 50 % of the milk by 2019 and 80 % by 2021.

Many states have taken the initiative to provide a glass of milk to school children to improve their nutrition and we have extended our fortification drive to this sweetened and flavored Milk for children which is now getting fortified with Vitamin A and Vitamin D to provide them with these micronutrients in addition to the goodness of Milk.
