Dairy assistance (1 o 2)

Dairy assistance

A New Zealand advisor (right) is handed a bottle of milk at a tasting session in Bombay, India, around 1960. New Zealand assisted in setting up a dairy plant in the city. The plant provided a clean, safe milk supply, prevented a build-up of stock within the urban environment, and gave farmers in the surrounding countryside a bigger market for their milk. In addition to giving technical advice and equipment, New Zealand provided skim milk powder. Added to Indian cow or buffalo milk, the milk powder reduced the overall fat content while maintaining a high level of milk solids. Known as 'toned milk', it became very popular.
