“The Indian dairy industry does not only consist of the large milk cooperatives,” said Sujith Sathyadas, marketing manager, DuPont Nutrition & Health, South Asia. “There are also innumerable small-medium dairies that exist in tier 2 cities. Everyone wants to grow and make the best value added dairy products for their customers that meet their regional need and taste. I think that’s where we will add value, help them differentiate, innovate and commercialize products faster to market.”
