During 2015-16, India produced 155.491 Million Tonnes (4144 lakh litres per day) of milk which is 18.5% of the world production.

Tamil Nadu ranks among the top ten milk producing states of the country with a daily production of 201 lakh litres per day.The state has a very vibrant milk cooperative sector with milk producers’ cooperative societies spread across nook and corner of the state. There are 12,585 milk producers’ cooperative societies having 20.26 lakh milk farmers as members. 

The average milk procurement through 17 District Co-operative Milk Producers Unions during the year 2017-18 stood at 29.46 LLPD. On 30.09.2018, procurement stood at an all time high level of 35.20 lakh litres. Aavin stands at fourth position among the state cooperatives across the country.  In order to maintain the initial quality of milk and to improve the keeping quality of milk by avoiding long time transportation to Chilling Centres/Dairies, Bulk Milk Coolers (BMC) have been installed at village level for immediate chilling of milk. At present, there are 341 BMCs with a chilling capacity of 15.19 llpd.
