PRAN Dairy Limited has continued to collect all milk from its contractual dairy farmers at a time when the farmers are facing difficulties to sell milk due to ongoing lockdown across the country.

As Covid-19 has been increased, the dairy processor is also giving direction and creating awareness among the farmers so that they can collect and supply the milk to the collection center following proper health guidelines, said a press release.

Maksudur Rahman, Assistant General Manager (Operation) at PRAN Dairy said, “We always collect milk from our 12 thousands contractual farmers regularly.”

He also said that PRAN has five hubs located at Chatmohar of Pabna, Gurudaspur of Natore, Shahjadpur and Baghabari of Sirajganj and Rangpur.  There are 101 collection center under the hubs.

Kamruzzaman Kamal, Marketing Director at PRAN-RFL Group, said, “We are able to provide products to the customers due to the government move to keep the supply of agriculture, dairy and other essential products normal.”

He also said, “Government encourages people to stay at home in corona situation. The demand of milk generally increases in the month of Ramadan. Considering this, we have introduced home delivery facilities so that they can collect milk and milk related products at home.”
