Berhampur, June 24 (LocalWire): After garnering good response in its two ATMs dispensing milk in the Silk City of Greater Ganjam, Gajapati Cooperative Milk Producers’ Union Limited (GGGCMPUL), a cooperative organization of the milk suppliers on Tuesday set up two more milk ATMs including a mobile ATM.
MLA (Berhampur) Bikram Kumar Panda and Ganjam collector Vijay Amruta Kulange inaugurated the milk ATMs on the premises of MKCG Medical College and Hospital here.
One more milk ATM will start functioning soon at Chhatrapur, said General Manager, GGGCMPUL Dillip Kumar Patnaik.
While the mobile milk ATM will dispense milk at the doorstep of the people in different streets, the patients in the medical college can get the hot-milk from the ATM established at the medical college.
“We have made facilities for providing hot-milk to the persons on request at the medical college,” he said.
At the time of the lockdown, imposed by the district administration to contain the Covid-19, the people were facing a lot of difficulties in procuring milk.
The mobile milk ATM, however, solves their problem by dispensing the quality milk at their door-step, said MLA.
“We aim to provide customers with pure milk without adding any preservatives or additives.
When the ATM needs more milk than our dairy can supply, we source the extra milk from farmers,” said GM.
“As fresh milk is taken directly from the farmers, the profit from the ATM would go to them and they will be benefitted,” he said.
