Fonterra in talks over 40,000 cow farm in India

Dairy conglomerate Fonterra is in talks with big Indian farmer cooperative Iffco on setting up a super-size dairy farm in the world's biggest and fastest growing dairy market.

While newspaper reports out of India said a partnership deal had been reached giving Iffco a 45 per cent stake and Fonterra 30 per cent in a 40,000 cow venture, Fonterra global trade managing director Kelvin Wickham said no formal agreement has been reached and the parties are in "exploratory talks".

A report in India's Economic Times says 3000 cows will be imported from New Zealand and Australia with India supplying 10,000 cows annually for the next three years.

The report says the partnership will produce top quality milk for premium customers and that India is considering relaxing a 30-year-old regulation on cow imports for commercial use that would otherwise hamper the venture.

But Fonterra is downplaying the report. Wickham said Fonterra has "an interest" in the Indian dairy market. But as in China, "the starting point for any dairy business in India will be securing a high quality, traceable milk supply," he said.

The Economic Times said the balance of shares in the venture would be held by India's Global Dairy Health.

The report said the primary objective of the dairy farm at Nellore was import substitution and to develop India as a hub for milk exports to southeast and west Asia.

Fonterra last year exited an Indian processing joint venture, Britannia New Zealand Foods, saying it no longer fitted the company's strategic priorities.

The New Zealand farmer-owned cooperative sold its stake to partner Britannia Ltd, saying although there was a lot of growth in India, the local milk supply was fragmented and required significant development and investment to deliver an efficient supply chain for high quality fresh milk.

10 model schools to get facelift in Nellore
Nellore, Sept. 24: Action plan is being prepared to improve infrastructure in the model schools being established under the auspice of Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan (RMSA) in 10 educationally backward mandals of Nellore district.

The union government funded RMSA has been launched with an aim to achieve universal access and quality secondary education.

Existing zilla parishad schools with not less than five acres have been selected in a bid to convert them as model schools under RMSA scheme.

The schools are located at Seetharamapuram, Kondapuram, A.S.Peta, Duttalur, Ottur in Kavali, Kaligiri, Brahmanapalli in Marripadu, Venkatagiri, Tallampadu in D.V.Sathram and Tada.

New buildings will be constructed in place of the old ones and facilities such as laboratories, libraries will be established in all the model schools.

Computer systems will be supplied to the schools to give exposure and on hand training in computers to the students.

Authorities have identified 105 resource persons and gave them training on the RMSA system to enable them train teachers in all the schools coming under the scheme in phased manner.

It may be mentioned here that RMSA scheme is also covering nearly 364 schools including ZP, Government and Welfare schools in the district.

However, unlike in model schools, a face lift will be given to these schools besides providing basic infrastructure.

IFFCO to set up bacteria-free dairy project
Monday, August 30, 2010 08:00 IST
Our Bureau, New Delhi

The Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative Limited (IFFCO) is setting up a dairy project at Nellore in Andhra Pradesh with a foreign partner to produce bacteria-free milk as per international standards.

IFFCO is the world’s largest fertiliser cooperative federation which is registered as a multi-state cooperative society. It has over 40,000 member cooperatives.

We are setting up a dairy project in Nellore and it plans to produce high-quality bacteria-free milk there which conforms to international standards, Uday Shanker Awasthi, MD of IFFCO, said.

The new plant was expected to cater to the increasing demand for dairy products, he said, adding that IFFCO plans to sell these products in domestic as well as foreign markets. “Quantity of bacteria in milk produce in India is very high. We plan to produce high quality milk which retains its freshness for a longer time,” Awasthi said.

In the financial year 2009-10, the cooperative registered a business of Rs 16,800 crore and sold 118 lakh tonnes of fertiliser in the country.

Thumbs up CM wants incentives to SEZ to continue

CM wants incentives to SEZ to continue
BS Reporter / Chennai/ Hyderabad September 02, 2010, 0:48 IST

Chief minister K Rosaiah has urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to continue all the fiscal incentives originally envisaged for the special economic zones (SEZs) and the units therein even after introduction of the Direct Tax Code (DTC).

“I earnestly request that in the larger interest of industrial development in the country, that the central government may kindly continue all the fiscal incentives originally envisaged for the SEZs,” Rosaiah stated in his speech pointing out there were apprehensions that the incentives would be discontinued with the introduction of DTC.

In this context, he also said that the state was promoting a number of SEZs for creation of employment opportunities to youngsters.

The written speech of the chief minister was read out by state major industries minister, K Lakshminarayana, at the foundation stone laying ceremony of the NTPC-BHEL power equipment manufacturing project at Mannavaram in Chittoor district on Wednesday. Rosaiah could not attend the function due to ill health.

According to Rosaiah, the Nellore-Chittoor region is going to be a major hub for investments. It is ideally positioned with close connectivity to three international airports (Bangalore, Chennai and upcoming Tirupati) and three important seaports (Krishnapatnam, Chennai and Ennore) besides being close to the Golden Quadrilateral Expressway.

He said a large number of mega power projects were coming up in the area, which had been identified as the Manufacturing Investment Region according to the policy of the Union government.

Stating that AP was well positioned to emerge as the manufacturing hub in the country, Rosaiah informed the Prime Minister that a Global Investors Meet was scheduled to be held in the state capital in February 2011 in association with the Confederation of Indian Industry to attract large-scale investments from across the globe.

Thumbs up Iffco plans Rs 1k-cr dairy biz foray

Iffco plans Rs 1k-cr dairy biz foray

NEW DELHI: Taking a leaf out of Amul’s book, Iffco, the world’s biggest fertiliser cooperative , is set to enter the dairy business with an over Rs 1,000-crore venture by the year-end.

The dairy venture, the first unit to go on stream at Iffco’s Kisan AEZ at Nellore, will showcase a state-of-the-art world class processing plant for processed dairy produce including cheese. It is likely to be a joint venture with an undisclosed Delhi-based business house and an Israeli dairy major.

However, the model of dairy farming envisaged is different from that of the Kaira District Cooperative (Amul) and the GCMMF. Amul has a processing capacity of around 130 lakh litres of milk a day. The Iffco venture is likely to have the capacity to process milk from around 15,000 milch animals. Holstein/Jersey cows are expected to be bred for the dairy farm to ensure quality. The idea, officials said, was that each Iffco farmer would own a share of the cows at the farm.

This will the first time in recent years that the dairy industry will actually see a venture of this size with a dairy farm attached to the processing plant. The company is still mulling over a “distinctive” name for its produce alongside the “Iffco” brand name.

Iffco MD US Awasthi said: “We are entering the sector after much deliberation. But we are not in competition with anyone since there is ample demand for quality dairy produce.”

Iffco is understood to be in the “penultimate stage of negotiations” with an Israeli dairy major. A New Zealand dairy major is also in the reckoning. The location at Nellore is considered ideal for distribution of produce to nearby metros like Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and even Mumbai, apart from many tier-II and tier-III towns in the region.

We plan to use cold storage, maybe even dedicated trains from Nellore to transport the produce to these metros,” an official said.

Iffco plans to sell the same quality of milk at a concessional rate to domestic consumers in semi-urban and rural regions . A recent NSSO study pegged rural milk spend (of all food spend) at 15% and urban spend at 19%.

Andhra Pradesh has seen significant growth in the past on the dairy front. Chandrababu Naidu’s Heritage brand vies for space with other brands such as Creamline in tandem with the weakening of the state coop milk federation.

In early 2008, Gujarat CM Narendra Modi struck a deal with an Israeli dairy firm El bit for setting up a massive dairy farm and processing plant in the state but, following strong protests from Amul, El bit moved its $100-million project to Chittor district in AP.

More on that

IFFCO to set up integrated dairy at Nellore

The world's largest farmers cooperative, Indian Farmers Fertiliser Co-Operative Limited (IFFCO), on Monday said it was negotiating with two global players for setting up an integrated dairy in its upcoming food processing special economic zone (SEZ) in Nellore.

Besides, IFFCO is in talks with a Russian company for setting up a fertiliser plant there, Managing Director U. S. Awasthi said.

“We are negotiating with a firm in the U.S. and New Zealand for setting up an integrated dairy in our farm-based food processing SEZ in Nellore,” Mr. Awasthi told reporters here.

The proposed dairy envisaged an investment of Rs. 1,000 crore, he said, adding that “We expect to sign the deal before end-December.”

Besides equity partner, the overseas firm would be a management partner in the venture, he said, adding that “marketing will be done by IFFCO.”

The venture would have around 6,000 livestock, which would be imported to begin with “however, later we will develop a local cross-breed,” Mr. Awasthi said.

On hike in fertiliser prices, Mr. Awasthi said there was a 5-10 per cent increase but “farmers have not resisted it due to a hike in the support prices of food grains.” He said soil productivity in the country has come down due to the non-optimum ways of utilisation of fertilisers.

“What we need is soil productivity enhancement. We have started a new project, save the soil. Our fertilisers need to be fortified with zinc and boron. We have taken steps to fortify fertilisers produced from our plants with micro nutrients like sulphur, zinc and boron,” he said.

Mr. Awasthi said IFFCO was awaiting the Gazette notification on fortification in this regard.

On the co-operative's proposed power plant in collaboration with the Chhattisgarh Government, he said the state-owned entity was awaiting a few regulatory approvals, which were expected to come shortly.

“Everything is ready. We are only waiting for forest clearance for the coal block. The power plant work may start soon,” he said.

The proposed coal-based power plant with a total capacity of 1,320 MW is coming up in Chhattisgarh at an investment of Rs. 7,300 crore with IFFCO having a 74 per cent stake and the remaining, the Chhattisgarh Government.

Krishnapatnam Port wins South East CEO Award

Krishnapatnam Port wins South East CEO Award

SME Times News Bureau | 07 Aug, 2010
Krishnapatnam Port, the world-class port on the Indian horizon, wins for the second time in a row, the prestigious 2nd South East CEO Conclave & Awards 2010 in the Non-Major Port category.

The award ceremony was organized by The Exim Shipping Times held in Chennai recently.

Krishnapatnam Port was felicitated in this category based on the parameters of Operational Performance, Infrastructure Development & Customer Satisfaction.

This is further proven by the 100% growth rate in volume throughput achieved by handling 16.1 Mn MT in FY 2009-10 vis-a-vis 8.1 Mn MT in FY 2008-09.

Krishnapatnam Port is just a two year old port and is already creating ripples in shipping circles around the world.

This has only been possible due to its skill of building and operating the port in a very high standard giving the utmost value to all its customers. Its belief in innovating, improving and adapting to the needs of its customers is the success formula in making it India’s biggest multipurpose port with an infrastructure and logistic setup of international caliber.

This is indeed a great honor and a strong validation of the port’s commitment to serve India’s growth. The port strongly believes that it will play a key role in driving the economy to great heights in the future.

Thumbs up Emami launches edible oil brand

Emami launches edible oil brand

Kolkata, Feb 20 (IANS) City-based Rs.2,500-crore Emami Group has forayed into the food and beverage business with the launch of its edible oil brand “Healthy and Tasty” and plans to clock Rs.300 crore business in the first year, a senior company official said here Saturday.
“We are aiming at a market share of 10 percent of the Rs.10,000 crore edible oil market in the country by 2015,” Emami Group director Aditya V. Agarwal said during the launch of the brand in the city.

Emami will introduce the product in West Bengal, North-East and Karnataka, which will be followed by a pan-Indian launch.

Agarwal said the company plans to make the edible oil brand a Rs.1,500-crore brand over next five years.

“The edible oil will be produced at our plant in Haldia. The plant will have the capacity to produce 1,000 tonnes per day of palm oil and 600 tonnes per day of soybean oil. Eventually the palm oil production capacity will be enhanced to 1,400 tonnes per day,” Manish Goenka, director of the company said.

The company is planning to set up two edible oil refineries - one at Krishnapatnam in Andhra Pradesh and another in Gujarat.

“Both the refineries would be set up by 2010-11 and for the Krishnapatnam project we are finalising the land now,” Agarwal said.

The Krishnapatnam refinery will be refining palm and sunflower oil. The investment for this refinery would be to the tune of Rs.250 crore.

The company plans Rs.1,000 crore investment in the next three years, he said, which might include “some domestic buyouts”.

He declined to divulge any further details of the acquisitions.

Database of autos to prevent crime

Nellore, Nov. 19: In the wake of the growing number of crimes involving autorickshaws and autorickshaw drivers, authorities have started creating a database for all autorickshaws plying in Nellore town. A code number is being given to each autorickshaw and all details including a photograph of the driver will be displayed in the autorickshaw for the benefit of passengers.

It is enough if the passenger notes down either the vehicle number or the code number or even the name of the driver to catch them in case of a problem.

Giving details of the exercise to reporters here on Friday, the district superintendent of police (SP), Mr E. Damodar, said that they were also taking the assistance of the transport department in developing the data.

He said that traffic inspector Mr Raghava Rao had already collected the data of 9,000 autorickshaws manually and it was being computerised now. Referring to serious traffic problems in parts of Nellore town, the SP stressed the need for consistent efforts to overcome the situation.

According to the SP, police had decided to remove fish vendors and automobile mechanics along the Muttukur Road in Haranadhapuram to free road margins and bottlenecks affecting the flow of traffic from the traffic signal.

Similarly, Trunk Road between V.R. College and Gandhi statue has been declared as a ‘no parking’ area on both sides of the road. Recovery vehicles of the police wing will be stationed to remove vehicles parked without any warning to the owners.
Interestingly, police have already collected Rs 4.26 lakh as penalty for parking violations after introducing the recovery vehicles.

Massive state of art cranes for Krishnapatnam Port unloaded
Project cargo specialist, Seatech Shipping and Project Pvt Ltd, recently adroitly handled Krishnapatnam Port’s new installations, the massive state of the art German made Liebherr cranes.

The two cranes, weighing 275 tonnes each and measuring 67 feet x 20 feet x 117 feet were loaded in Rostock (Germany) on board the vessel Atlant Svenja and discharged by Seatech Shipping here.

As ship agents, Seatech displayed perfect timing and coordination. Its team of operational experts swung into action, berthing Atlant Svenja on arrival, completing discharge operations (two heavy loads of 275 tonnes each and accessories) swiftly, and facilitating its turnaround within a record 48 hours.

Adding to the challenges faced by Seatech Shipping was the heavy congestion at the Port.

Seatech has consistently bettered its own service levels to set new performance benchmarks. Not surprisingly, it has proved its mettle by discharging 10 such cranes for the Krishnapatnam Port authorities.

In the past, Seatech has been in the limelight for fixing MV Atlant Frauke on her maiden voyage at Krishnapatnam Port, making it the first vessel to be registered at the port in 2007.
