“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
Sumul Dairy is working on fully automatic milk producing plant producing 15 lacs liters of milk and other milk made products per day. In order to impart practical knowledge regarding its processes, flow variations, designs of different units and their concepts, production process and manufacturing, packaging, waste utilization and management, learners of Gajera International School, Utran were taken to Sumul Dairy.
The Learners were assigned a guide who showcased them milk receiving section, operation section- milk section, dispatch section, automation and control room. The visit awakened the interests of students in newer techniques of aseptic processing and packaging of milk and milk products. They also saw different milk products ranging from solid to liquid. Learners understood the entire procurement, production and quality management aspects of the milk production unit.
They gained knowledge about the many stages that a product goes through before it is ready for the final consumer, particularly milk and paneer. They also got an insight into the duties and roles of various employees in the process. Learners understood the production processes, products and operations of one of the best examples of co- operative achievement in a developing economy.
The Sumul Dairy staff was very cooperative and helpful with the visit. It was a great learning experience and it will help them become lifelong enquirers.
