To create awareness among the people , College of Dairy Science and Technology (CODST), Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU) is  organizing a week long “Milk Adulteration Testing Camp “from 26th May to 1st June, 2021 on occasion of World Milk Day.

In this camp, milk will be tested free of cost for any adulterant present. In this camp, residents of Punjab may bring minimum 100 ml chilled raw milk samples in clean and dry glass/plastic bottles to CODST between 8 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. on these dates. The milk sample bottles should be labelled with the name and contact number of the person. The milk samples will be analyzed at the college and milk quality results will be conveyed through WhatsApp or text messages on the following day.  

Dr Inderjeet Singh, Vice-Chancellor GADVASU expressed his happiness that CODST took a lead in organizing Milk adulteration testing camp. This camp will create the awareness among consumers about milk he added.  

He revealed that the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) selected June 1st in 2001 as World Milk Day, which celebrates the contributions of the dairy sector to sustainability, economic development, livelihoods and nutrition. The main objective of celebration of World Milk Day is to provide information about the need and importance of milk in a human being's life.  

Dr Ramneek, Dean, CODST took this initiative to generate awareness among people about the importance of quality and safety of milk.He informed that adulteration of milk by unscrupulous persons is usually done for increasing the quantity of milk, extending shelf-life, maintaining SNF and avoiding detection of sour milk, depending on the situation. Many of these adulterants may be harmful to the body.  

Dr. Inderpreet Kaur, Dr. Veena N. and Dr. Nitika Goel are organizing this camp to facilitate the milk consumers to get their milk tested free of cost. For any query regarding milk adulteration testing camp, one may contact at the tel. number 0161- 2553308.
