Whether it's milk, yogurt or cheese — people all over the world consume and enjoy dairy-based foods. However, while these products have great potential as sources of calcium, protein and vitamin D, their nutritional value is not necessarily guaranteed without good farming practices.
When Abbott was faced with the growing demand for nutrition products in India, it needed to ensure a dependable supply of high-quality milk. But many dairy farmers in India lacked the technical knowledge and resources to produce high-quality dairy.
Abbott partnered with Prabhat, an Indian dairy company, and TechnoServe, an international nonprofit that supports farms and businesses in the developing world. Together, they created a program to transform farmers' lives by providing them with the knowledge, resources and infrastructure needed to produce high-quality milk and run their businesses, while at the same delivering the milk needed for Abbott's nutrition facility locally.
