Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has asked dairy products maker Nestle India to adopt a collective strategy with Animal Husbandry Department, Dairy Federation and private sectors to set up milk collection centres in the state, an official release said on Thursday.

Hooda, after inaugurating second unit of Nestle at Samalkha in district Panipat on Thursday, said that this would be a win-win situation for both the farmers and investors.

He also commended initiative taken by Nestle for working very closely with farmers in the state and for transfer of technology and know-how to increase productivity and quality of milk in a sustainable manner and also for imparting nutrition knowledge to young students in village schools under Global Healthy Kids Programme.

He said this second unit of Nestle costing about Rs 600 crore would prove beneficial not only for the state, but for the entire country.

Hooda said Haryana is transforming from an agrarian state into a vibrant industrial economy and is eventually positioning itself as one of the leading states in the country.
