5th December - 9th December 2011 IIM-A Graduate To Open Up Dairy Farm
While the management graduates from across the world dream of making it big across the top corporates, Kartikeya Jha of none other than IIM- A is gearing up to start about his very own dairy farm. He aims at providing customers with organic milk, which is a rare form of milk in the country today. An entrepreneurial venture had been up his sleeve since his very childhood. Mr. Jha boasts of a Masters Degree in Pharmacology and Toxicology from New York and a work experience of ten years as a manager in a private firm followed soon after. He gave wings to his dream of enrolling himself in the PGPX programme at IIM-A thereafter. An amalgamation of a strong alumni network, a formal management education as well as ten good years of experience has made strong the foundation of the venture that this entrepreneur wishes to set up. Kartikeya is currently on the hunt for some non agricultural land in which he can set up this dairy farm of his, for which he is talking with the Gujarat Mineral Development Corporation (GMDC). His plans revolve around rearing anything between 20 and 40 cows in the beginning and taking the count to 150 by the next three years. Organic fodder is an essential ingredient for organic milk and Jha wishes to “rope in local farmers” who can be suppliers of such fodder which has not been exposed to fertilizers and pesticides. Artificial hormones to induce and enhance milk production is a strict no-no, considering the threat of health hazards. A milking parlour would also be set up such that the milk is untouched by hand. A stateof-the-art aseptic technique will form the most part of the farm such that bacteria load in the milk is reduced to a bare minimum. While thinking of this kind of model, Jha not only had the huge potential of the organic food sector in mind, but he also wanted to generate employment for the rural population. This idea has earned APJ Abdul Kalam’s appreciation as well.
