Nearly 15,000 litres of milk, in tetra packs of 1 liter and lesser volumes, have been sent to Qatar in the first phase along with other products like ghee and flavoured milk.
“We have sent one container with a capacity of 15,000 Litres to Doha along with ghee. We plan to export 3-5 containers a month,” Aavin managing director C Kamaraj told T01.
Around 2.4 lakh litres had been exported to Singapore and 10,000 litres to Hong Kong, taking 25 days to reach. Milk from Chennai, heated at a certain temperature and packed in tetra packs, will remain fresh for several months,” said Kamaraj.
