Bid to pave the way for foreigners to monopolize this vital trade

by Suresh Perera

A top executive in Sri Lanka’s dairy business lashed out at multinational companies, which, he asserted were "conspiring to destroy the local milk industry to pave the way for foreigners to take over and monopolize this vital trade".

"The day won’t be far away when these elements with vested interests might even claim there are traces of urea in local milk or the industry is under threat from Mad Cow or some other dreaded disease", says Maliban Group’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), L.akshman Weerasuriya.

The motive behind these machinations is to strangle the dairy industry and spread their monopolistic tentacles, he claimed. "This is clear from what we witness now".

"We should be wary of attempts by multinationals to undermine a key industry so close to Sri Lankan hearts", Weerasuriya told a news conference at the Maliban Milk Foods complex at Ratmalana last week.

"It is not only milk powder, but even consumer commodity markets such as noodles, soap and toothpaste that are being monopolized by multinations", he said. "They call the tune".

The CEO was also bitterly critical of a section of the media, which he accused of "misrepresenting facts and distorting the true picture" in relation to, what he described as "unfounded claims of Dicyandiamide (DCD) in Maliban Non Fat milk powder".

"We will be sending a Letter of Demand seeking Rs. 500 million in damages", he declared, displaying front page news reports in two newspapers. "We give them revenue by way of advertising and they, in turn, publish baseless stories to tarnish our image".

There are millions of dollars being offered by "interested parties" to gradually cripple the local milk industry, he charged. "Perhaps, a part of this funding also goes to plant half-baked stories in the media".

Those responsible for publishing such "grossly distorted news stories" are either, wittingly or unwittingly, helping "foreign conspirators" to achieve their sinister objective, Weerasuriya said.

When pointed out that it was the Industrial Technology Institute (ITI), which reported DCD contamination in Maliban Non Fat milk powder following a scientific analysis, he replied, "No way. We totally reject these baseless findings. There would have been a mix up, either by accident or design, in the samples tested".

"We have conclusively established through advanced laboratory testing that our products are free of DCD and hence, absolutely safe for consumption", the CEO assured. "A sample sent to a laboratory in Singapore also proved negative".

He said that 16 samples drawn from the marketplace had been placed in separate containers marked A. B. C. and so forth for DCD testing by the ITI. Akin to a wrong blood or cholesterol report being handed over to a patient by a hospital, there could have been a similar mix up here also.

Asked whether the samples could have been deliberately switched during the ITI testing stage, he replied "Yes, that’s possible. Otherwise, how come they claim only Maliban Non Fat contains DCD when the full cream is also imported from Australia?"

All the unsubstantiated claims are a part of the conspiracy, Weerasuriya continued. "If there is scientific evidence of strains of this agricultural chemical in our milk food, we will offer Rs. 10 million in cash within 24 hours".

The CEO reiterated that the Australian dairy industry had not used DCD for the past 100 years. There is no evidence to suggest that this chemical had been used even in the past 25 years. The Australian government has categorically assured that its milk food is free of DCD and 100% safe for consumption.

"The Director General of Health Services (DGHS), Dr. Palitha Maheepala had instructed us in writing to withdraw a certain batch of milk food ‘Maliban had imported from New Zealand’. How can we do this when for the past 21 years we have brought down stocks only from Australia? This shows the callous indifference and inefficiency in dealing with this crucial issue, he noted.

He said that a copy of this letter addressed to Maliban had been leaked out of the DHGS office, photocopied and given to grocery stores in various parts of the country to scare customers. "One of our sales people caught a person in a vehicle distributing copies of this letter in Galle. The vehicle number and the suspect’s mobile number were obtained and the matter has been referred to the CID".

"There is an organized campaign against Maliban milk food as we have unearthed information of individuals being planted to discourage customers from buying our products", he said. "At a grocery store, my sister was also told that Maliban is contaminated, but when she challenged it, the woman who confronted her fled".

The bulk 75% of milk imports come from New Zealand under different brand names, while the balance 25% is procured from Australia. This translates into a total 4,500 metric tons (MT) of imports per month. Of this, Maliban supplies 1,600 MT from Australia, while 3,400 MT come from New Zealand. The local production is 600 MT.

"The difference is that we sell milk food and remain in Sri Lanka, unlike CEOs of multinational companies who depart after a three-year stint with a part of the profits", Weerasuriya stressed. "If we find our imports are contaminated, the consignments wonbe taken beyond the gate, but packed off to Australia again".

"We don’t have a single foreigner amongst our 3,000 employees at Maliban", he noted. "As a second generation company which emerged from humble beginnings, we maintain a profit margin of less than 5% on the sale of products in keeping with the vision of our founder".

"The funds we channel towards our CSR initiative is substantial", he underscored. "We have done enormous work for religious and social development in the country".


We stand by our findings on DCD — ITI Director

The Industrial Technology Institute (ITI) assumes full responsibility for the scientific analysis of DCD, Dr. Sirimal Premakumara, the Director of this key government institution said on Friday.

Dismissing suggestions that the samples tested had been "mixed up" or "switched", he said that an internationally accepted methodology was adopted for the analysis and the ITI stands by its findings.

He said the samples were drawn directly from the marketplace and the discovery of DCD contamination related exclusively to the relevant batches of imported milk food scientifically analyzed.

"Therefore, we cannot generalize on imported milk powder brands as a whole as only a particular stock was tested", the ITI chief explained.

Responding to Maliban’s query on how DCD was purportedly discovered only in Non Fat milk powder when full cream stocks were also procured from the same Australian source, Dr. Premakumara replied, "Our findings are known. It is their (Maliban’s) responsibility to ascertain the position relating to their imported consignments".

"I am prepared to do a similar analysis on the samples we collected in the presence of Maliban officials, if there is a need", he noted. (SP)

Now most people are trying to be a patriot. Recently we saw one "Patriot show in front of Biyagama Fonterra factory. I don't know why they did not do it in front of relevant ministries and other authorities also. Where were them at the "Rathupaswala incident" ?

Other thing, near future we can see lot of advertisement with local symbols, slogan , village family with glass of milk by same company.

"Ahu wennanam epa". Refuse it, till they are doing ethical business & give us a acceptable assurance.

1. Small Math mistake.

5,000 tons a month of imports.
Austrailian share is 1,600 tons this is a 32% share not a 25% share.

2. So a good Sri Lankan company imports all of its products from Australia and none from New Zealand!

I think a good Sri Lankan company would try to develop the local industry!!!!

Can't we improve our local industry to achieve 5,000 tons a month. Then all problems will automatically solve. We can keep lot of foreign currency in our country.

Individuals should be encouraged and financed through low interest (4%) loans for buying cows. Other ways are possible but not practical. The former model would take a long time but sure.

Example:Which company is interested in buying cows in huge quantities and developing the industry. Will the Govt. still forcibly increase the price of milk for them as they do for the small producers time and again?

Highly unlikely.

By special gazette notification there should be a law that each household should own a cow. A new ministry should be created to enforce this law to the letter. The officials will visit the houses and take samples of milk from the owners of the cow. If no milk is available, a new cow will be supplied from the National Livestock Dept. on instalment basis. If there is no cow then the penalty is the same for man just as the Bull.... castration. May be my suggestion is cockeyed or bullshit. But how can one say it is not possible if not tried out?

Why Sri Lanka’s dairy industry has languished
by Shiraz Jeevunjee Daily Financial Times 3rd August 2012

https://www.google.lk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CD4QFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ft.lk%2F2012%2F08%2F03%2Fwhy-sri-lankas-dairy-industry-has-languished%2F&ei=PNkZUoyTCYTqrAeixIHQBw&usg=AFQjCNGEJXvWI_JoFOP_ONRNwTX8Cumh0g&bvm=bv.51156542,d.bmk


I refer to the interesting article on the dairy sector in Tuesday’s edition of the Daily FT by Charitha Ratwatte.
I would like to give my opinion as to why the dairy industry has languished in an ever deteriorating state, with a reducing national herd and limited growth in milk production.
While being pessimistic on the goal of self sufficiency within a span of a few years, it is possible to get vast increases in production through improvements in productivity which will also improve the profitability of the small-scale dairy farmer and thereby improve his income.
Short-term answers such as importing cattle will only enrich the farms from where we import but we should be looking at the root of the problem. Those who are in control of this industry are well aware how many times cattle have been imported to Sri Lanka over the last 25 to 30 years. None of these imports have had a significant positive impact on the dairy industry.
Milk production is a commercial activity and any commercial activity must be viable, whether it is a rural small farmer or a large integrated farm, I believe there are some important misconceptions that have become clichés in this industry. Farmers do not need ‘handouts,’ they need support in order to make their venture profitable
As mentioned above, productivity of our farmers in general is the issue and our dairy farms are perhaps the least efficient in the world. Unless we get this issue resolved, there can never be growth in milk production.
A successful dairy farmer will have at least four sources of income: Sale of milk; sale of excess female calves; sale of male calves; cattle manure
All over the world herds that perform well have certain norms
n Assume that a cow has a productive life of eight years (in some developed countries this would be much shorter as they retain only the highest productive animals)
n A cow will give a calf every year – 365 days.
n After calving, the cow will give milk for 305 days.
n In a good farm the 60 days before the next calving is used to improve the condition of the cow in readiness for the next cycle of milking.
nA cow can thus produce four male calves and four females during its productive life. Assume one of these out of eight dies, the net result is the herd will grow by 3.5 females and 3.5 males. In this situation the female herd will grow and the males can be used for beef production.
Compare this with the average performance in Sri Lanka (the statistics given may be outdated but the essence of the argument is valid as we do not meet the international norms)
n The life span is shortened for various reasons including disease, unproductive weak animals, and animals being sold to butchers as the farmer cannot afford to keep them.
n The average calving interval in Sri Lanka would be over 450 days
n The average lactation length would be around 250 days
n In the days before calving when the cow is dry and unproductive for such a long period (200 days) the farmer cannot afford to adequately feed this animal. This is in contrast to the situation in a good herd where this is a time when the cow is prepared for the lactation period ahead.
It is clear why the national herd is dwindling:
n The farmer has to wait as much as 200 days without an income.
n The number of calves born falls far short of the replacement requirement and in any case due to pressure on his livelihood the farmer often sells his animals prematurely.
n As the farmer’s income cannot meet his expenses he simply cannot afford to feed unproductive animals and so both the mother cow and thenew born calfhave a poor nutritional status. With this the downward spiral continues.
n Milk production is down both due to low lactation period and lactation interval as well as due to poor nutritional and health status of the cow.
What are the problems that result in this poor productivity?
n Failure of the AI programs to reach the receptive cows at the right time to obtain satisfactory results. This is one of the reasons the calving interval is so long.
n Poor nutritional and health status of the existing herd. This not only impacts on the milk yield but also affects the fertility of the cow resulting again in long calving intervals.
n Unavailability and poor nutritional status of fodder. Fodder grasses are harvested from roadsides in the mid and up country regions and no one will grow high nutrition grasses or fertilise these common lands.
n In the coconut triangle large extents of land, fragmented due to land reform, has left these lands neglected both for the coconut as well as the potential of growing fodder grasses for dairy farming.
n High cost of concentrate feeds.
n Poor housing conditions and milking done in unsanitary conditions resulting in diseases such as mastitis resulting in reduced milk production and poor quality milk.
n Isolated farms resulting in difficult accessibility for the provision of AI, health and milk collection services.
In order to get out of this downward spiral, the farmer and other industry stakeholders need to be supported to correct the critical areas. The most important issues are:
n Improving the nutrition and health of the cattle.
n Obtaining an effective AI service.
n Providing some means to improve the pastures that are used by dairy farmers.
n Encouraging land holders in the coconut triangle who have been left with fragmented small land holdings to develop dairy farms and grow improved grasses on their land.
n Farmer training to make them understand the basics and the importance of obtaining a calf a year. They also need training in housing systems, clean milking practices and so many other areas.
None of the above ideas are rocket science and the list is not complete but the basics have to be done correctly if we are to have viable dairy farms. The question is who can deliver the support to these farmers. The only group that has access twice daily to each and every farmer is the milk collector.
Milk collectors must be empowered and regulated to ensure that they provide a set of planned inputs to the farmers whom they collect from. These collectors must be encouraged and incentivised to become processes.
Other than the large-scale processes, small scale regional collectors can effectively become processors and there are many examples of them. The problem is that no one is interested in making the farmer a viable entity. This is the responsibility of the State but direct intervention by state agencies has proven to be a failure.
They should be the catalysts who work with the collectors (who need to be registered and licensed to carry on their activity) who have the direct contact with every farmer. Therefore the enforcement, regulation and any other programs must happen through collectors/ processors who buy the milk.
Marketing
I think to reconvert the consumer to liquid milk preference (just as for eggs) we need to go to the schools. Fertile young minds will greatly benefit from the nutrition they receive as well as inculcate in them good nutritional habits!
We need to encourage small regional processors who could be encouraged to set up small scale processing plants. They could be the ones to provide the services to improve farmer productivity and profitability as well. The milk, collected at regional level could feed into a school milk programs. Win-win all around.
These processes will also need to be encouraged to develop products and distribution systems for their own regional needs. Standards must be established and enforced on raw milk quality and of processed products. Quality products will encourage increased consumer interest.
Milk powder will be here for a long time to come not just because of misleading advertising but because that is what fits the consumer’s needs right now. We really need to understand consumption habits and develop products and marketing systems that meet the requirements of our consumers.
In India any milk vendor will have sold out his product by 11 a.m. Rural people without any idea of why it is so have found innovative methods of storing milk without refrigeration. One example is to keep the milk heated at pasteurisation temp in a pot overnight (no thermometers are used). The milk is kept bacteria free and consumed the next day.
While not advocating this as a processing method, we should be looking for innovative and low cost processing and distribution systems, especially for small-scale regional processors.
There is so much more that can be done for this industry if there are dedicated people to serve it. State intervention is needed to correct the issues I have mentioned above. Is there a Kurien in Sri Lanka? I doubt it.

This will take a long time

- Improving the nutrition and health of the cattle.

- Obtaining an effective AI service.

- Providing some means to improve the pastures that are used by dairy farmers.

- Encouraging land holders in the coconut triangle who have been left with fragmented small land holdings to develop dairy farms and grow improved grasses on their land.

- Farmer training to make them understand the basics and the importance of obtaining a calf a year. They also need training in housing systems, clean milking practices and so many other areas.

After very young age milk gives nothing special other than its taste.
Milk is not an essential food. It has special values only for  TV ads making people.

My first child refused drinking cows milk. After a difficult time with infant formula we gradually changed to rice.  We gave few tablespoonfuls of thick blended red rice instead of 'piti kiri'.
Throughout the schooling days  it continued that way. Now ,she is in the final year Uni of CMB.

Milk is worth until we can get it cheaper than other meals. In villages cow gives free milk ,  cheaper than rice.

Now, we  pay unrealistic price for it .

400gm pack is 320/-
It has 100g of protein, 152 gm of cabo and 104 g of fat.
For each 100grams we pay 80/- Rupees.

If you take boiled red rice, the cost of 100 grams is Rs. 4.50
For Each 100 g it has 8 g of protein, 77g of cabo and 3 g of fat.
8%  is the required amount of protein for humans .

Most dangerous is Non Fat milk. Elderly people take it as a healthy  food for them than Full cream. Non Fat has higher percentage of  protein  . It can produce life threatening mucus in the lungs .

WHY DO DAIRY PRODUCTS CAUSE ASTHMA?

Eighty percent of milk protein is CASEIN, the same glue used
to hold together wood in furniture.  Casein is also the glue
used to affix a label to a bottle of beer.  Eat casein and
you produce histamines. Histamines result in mucus.  Mucus
makes breathing difficult.  Thousands of children die,
primarily African-Americans.  Many deaths are misdiagnosed,
called congestive heart failure.

I do not know these authorities are doing more & more DCD testing with this milk poder stock. But as Doctor said & according to our experienc this lot also will come to market again at some point.

I think authorities like Health, customer protection should come forward and clarify to public what is hapening. Seems they try to ignore the matter. My fear is, sometimes people also will ignore this after few weeks & will drink same milk more & more.
 
Dear mates, We saw lot of good articles regarding this DCD & milk powder, how our authorities handle this, what those companies did. Atleast acknowledge your home/family regarding this.

Contaminated milk powder - Four batches removed from market
By  Chamara Sumanapala Sunday, 01 September 2013.

The Health Ministry has ordered the removal and destruction of another batch of milk powder from the market due to Dicyandiamide (DCD) contamination. Furthermore, the Ministry has ordered to remove three other batches from the market pending further tests.

The tests carried out by the Industrial Technology Institute (ITI) have confirmed that the Batch No. SL6CC653 of Milgro Instant Full Cream Milk Powder has been contaminated with DCD, while tests have also raised suspicions that DCD contamination had occurred in batches of three other brands. Accordingly, the Health Ministry has ordered the Milgro batch where contamination was confirmed to be removed from the market and destroyed appropriately.

Meanwhile, Anchor 1+, 400g (Batch No. 107611293), Raththi Full Cream Milk Powder 400g (Batch No. 0692G2143) and Anchor Pediapro Mama (Batch No. 2323H1733) stocks are to be removed and withheld pending further tests.
The Health Ministry meanwhile refuted certain reports that it was planning to test local milk powder brands for DCD. The Food Advisory Committee of the Health Ministry emphasizes that no such decision has been taken.

I appreciate the scientific way of your analysys. Its food for thought not only for consumers but also for our enterpreanures. Products such as thre-posha, kola-kanda can encroach the multimillion rupees milk food market under the curcumstances, provided they have a budget to educate the consumers.

Imports: Lanka spends more on milk than drugs
September 4, 2013, 10:20 pm , www.island.lk.

By Emanthi Marambe

Sri Lanka spends more foreign exchange on imported milk than on imported drugs.

Rs. 40 bn is spent annually on milk foods which account for 0.58 of the GDP, according to bank reports.

Milk is the second most consumed food item in the country. Rice ranks the first. It also ranks second on the country’s import bill.

The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) said a myth was being propagated by some companies that cow’s milk was essential for children and adults to remain healthy. It said the public should not fall for such false propaganda as the multinational companies were bent on maximising their profits rather than anything else.

The GMOA has urged Health Ministry Secretary Dr. Nihal Jayatillake to introduce programme to inform the public of the need for children to be fed solid food after they wean from breast milk.

My aunts flem on the chest at night has improved quite a bit after completely stopping milk. She now takes no milk products at all. The improvement was not immediate but has been gradual. Now is about 50% better than it was before.

Thanks once again for the tip Chinwi!

I would also recommend that anyone else who faces the same problem to first try this simple solution before  resorting to drugs! Of course, speak to your doctor first!

Extensive studies done in other parts of the World have shown that more than 60% of the population is suffering from complications arrived due to their bodies Lactose intolerance.

Milk will make you stronger is just another myth and Dairy cartels are only making billions on that myth and they try to stifle the findings of those scientific researches done by many renowned researchers by throwing their ill-gotten money around.

Giving up dairy totally and finding other easy and natural ways to supplement your Calcium and protein intakes is far better than falling for Dairy cartels ad campaigns and poison your bodies.

I remember reading a scientiic article on the extensive damage being done to the Ozone cover by the diary industry at large the world over. Use of DCD has some connection to tackle this issue. This was an experiment done by farmers without any regard for the consumers.

What they have done to protect the Ozone cover has contaminated the milk powder and they kept it a secret for some time.

Kukumarks, nice to hear the results.

Until recently I consumed over 50% of total milk powder we (family) buy !.

Now shifted to plain T in the evening and .... malt before bed.

Lankan made Malts are now cheaper 225/- per pack. (No good if you have seeni )

Most of asthma cases can get some relief after restricting cows milk.

Apart from Milk, there is another non published risk from Gluten. Gluten allergy is said to be a thing in the West but I think we have to study its effect to our bodies also.

Gluten makes holes in the intestines of the people who are allergic to it.  
Grilled or fried food with bad quality oil (palm oil or used coconut oil) contains many  harmful chemicals but fortunately they cannot enter into the blood stream across healthy tissues of the intestine.

When gluten make holes bigger than those harmful molecules those substances enter into the system and many kinds of anti bodies are created and  buildup in the body as a reaction.

This situation trigger many skin problems like itching , eczema and psoriasis and also increase asthmatic or wheezing ailments.

If anybody  have such conditions I think we can do a small experiment.  It is good if you can stay away from fried foods ( rolls , patties , wadei etc.made outside in unknown conditions *) and also from wheat products ( bread, biscuits ) at least over 3 months and check if their any improvement.

* they do not throw away used oil

Cow dung emit Methane
Methane break Ozone

When humans breed millions of cows for milk and flesh they also produce thousands of tons of Methane producing excreta .
