Rajkot Dist. Coop. Milk Producers' Union Ltd rooted its existence 59 years before in the year 1956.

Rajkot Dist. Coop. Milk Producers' Union Ltd rooted its existence 59 years before in the year 1956. The dairy was first established in Rajkot by the Animal Husbandry(AH) Department of the Gujarat State under a pilot project of UNICEF- a sister concern of the UNO. Subsequently the Rajkot District(Dist.) Maldhari Cooperative Union Ltd. was formed in 1961 with the objective to bring "socio-economic development" in Maldhari Community (Animal keepers) followed by the Rajkot Dairy undertaking by the Rajkot Dist. Maldhari Cooperative Union under the leadership of Shri Devendrakumar R. Desai. Rajkot Dist. Coop. Milk Producers' Union Ltd. was registered during 1961 and was managed by AH Dept. of Govt. of Gujarat under Milk Conservation Project, Rajkot.

During 1970, the department of AH handed over the management of Rajkot dairy to Gopalak Sangh on Rs. 1/- token charge. In a span of two years, the dairy was handed over to Rajkot Milk Union during 1972 with total assets, liabilities and manpower. The total liabilities were in the tune of Rs. 61.0 lakhs and Share capital of Rs. 6,5 lakhs.

Rajkot Milk Union's effort to manage the activities from 1972 to 1977 was unsatisfactory and so a Joint Management with Gujarat Dairy Development Corporation Ltd (GDDC) was established from 1977 to 1981. But still due to inefficiency in bringing the desired results, the management of RMU was again handed over to Gujarat Dairy Development Corporation (GDDC) till 1982. In this time period, GDDC incurred a heavy loss which was equally shared by GDDC and RMU. It was a struggle for existence to come out with some workable solution and so, from Nov. 1983 to Oct. 1988, the milk union was again managed by the GDDC as per leave & license agreement.

After a series of interchanges between hands, finally in the year 1988, the Rajkot Dist. Coop. Milk Producers' Union Ltd. got the membership of the State Federation, which is the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd.(GCMMF) and since then the dairy is being independently managed by the milk producers representatives. The GDDC handed over the management of RMU to the Rajkot Dist. Coop. Milk producers' Union Ltd. on Nov. 2, 1988.

After 1988, the Union's activities started to stabilize. During 1990, the Union became the ordinary members from Associate Members of GCMMF. The RMU was also covered under the Operation Flood programme of NDDB & NDDB funded the milk union under O.F. programme to orgnise village level Dairy Cooperative societies to establish dairy plant of 1.0 lakh ltr./day capacity.

Besides many teething problems, the dairy had grown today to join the white revolution of India, Gujarat. The dedication, sincerity, persistence and neat policies led by the then chairmen and the effectiveness of the employees had gained the celebrating success of a long 59 years till today with hands on experience to move the Cooperative dairy (RMU) to many long years to come. The Support of the milk producers and their faith in cooperative unit has truly paved the place where Rajkot Milk Union is today.
