The Department of Meat Science and Technology has completed a development project title “Development of Camel Milk Value Chain by Adopting Modern Supply Chain Mechanism for Enhancing Farmers Profitability in Punjab” This project gave the awareness about the importance of camel milk not only to the consumers but also to camel owners who were rearing their livestock since ancient times. The camel milk of Cholistan region previously sold by farmers in open market on an average of Rs 22 per litter is now being sold to vendors at Rs 55 per litter. Moreover, international companies like Nestle are now approaching the LnDD department in the Cholistan for establishing camel milk supply chain to make full cream camel milk powder. This project created massive awareness among the potential consumers of Lahore and Faisalabad about the quality of camel milk. There is gradual increase in demand of the milk on UVAS milk shop and various departmental stores and bakeries in Lahore and Faisalabad.
