Success Stories:

  • Shri Sainath Sahakar Dudh Utpadakar Sangh Ltd., Mangur, Chikkodi Taluk, Belgaum District, Karnataka State.
    The Shri Sainath Sahakar Dudh Utpadakar Sangh Ltd., established in 1979 under the Karnataka Co Operative Societies Act 1959 has its registered office at Mangur, Chikkodi Taluk, Belgaum District, Karnataka State.
    The society has completed 40 years of glorious service. The society which had started with a bare minimum share capital of Rs.2,100/- with 21 members during 1979, as on date, has total share capital of Rs.6.5 lakh with 520 members. The society is run by 12 Elected Members consisting of chairman, vice chairman and 10 directors elected during the financial year 2020-2021.
    The vision of the society was to (i) promote self help cooperative principle/movement, (ii) help members to buy milching cattle and rear them, (iii) creation of storage facility for storing and marketing milk supplied by members, (iv) manufacture of milk products and market the same, (v) Help members to rear sheep chicken and market the produce, etc.
    The main objective of the society was to free domestic milk producers from the clutches of middlemen so as to increase production of milk and to get remunerative price for their produce through cooperative movement. Even through the society was established with a sole aim of procuring milk from the farmers, it has diversified its activities by started bakery products manufacturing unit in 1997. Now the society has two divisions, one for purchase and sale of milk produced by members of the society and another for production and sale of bakery products. The bakery units were established at Mangur, Chikkodi Taluk, Belgaum District.
    The society set up a bakery unit in the year 1997, with fire-wood oven and old machinery which was operated manually till 1999. Thereafter, society purchased a mechanized oven. During the initial years, the bakery was producing only limited products, such as buns, pav etc, which were sold in the local market. From this stage, the society has progressed to the level of manufacturing different varieties of products like, bread, bun, khari, biscuit, cakes, toast etc., with intake capacity of 12.00 MT per day (around 3400 MT per year). With the establishment of bakery, the society is providing direct employment to around 170 workers and indirect job opportunities to around 1000 people. Though the bakery unit is situated in interior rural area of Belgaum District, the performance of the bakery unit is highly commendable. About 30 varieties of bakery products, viz., milk bread, butter pav, kara butter, cake, milk toast, baby toast, etc. are being manufactured and sold in Karnataka as also in the neighbouring states of Maharashtra and Goa under the brand name “SAI SAHAKAR”. Presently the society has appointed 48 whole sale dealers in these areas. The manufactured bakery products are transported on the same day through 11 vehicles to different market places without any back-log. The fact that the society is selling entire quantity of bakery products to dealers on “No-replacement – No credit” basis is worth mentioning, paving way for maintaining quality of products.
