Cooling tanks in Pakistan
Pakistan Dairy Development Company (PDDC) is planning to establish over 6,000 cooling tanks under its cooling tank program. Under the program, the PDDC has facilitated setting up of its 1,000th cooling tank in less than two years.
Geoff Walker, CEO of PDDC, notes that prior to it, the dairy sector had around 1,500 cooling tanks in operation. The 1,000 tanks provided through the program are significant addition to the infrastructure of the sector.
Sarfraz Ahmad, programme manager of PDDC, states that the PDDC would play its part in the process of upgrading the quality of the milk in Pakistan. The company calculates that around 500,000 litres of milk per day is channelled through the cooling tanks established under the program.
