Milk is an essential part of daily diet and provides with vital nutrients. Milk is consumed by abundant population globally owing to its nutritional and health benefits. In modern era, owing to the busy lifestyle the demand for packaged dairy products has gone high. Milk and cheese are the dominant categories in the packaged dairy products industry.
