PETALING JAYA: Dutch Lady Milk Industries Berhad (Dutch Lady Malaysia), took a group of Education Ministry officials led by P. Kamalanathan, Deputy Minister of Education II, on an insightful “Grass to Glass” educational milk tour, recently.

The tour covered activities on a dairy farm as well as the UHT plant at the factory site in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. The contingent comprising State and Federal Education officers were presented with an extensive understanding of the local dairy industry, with Dutch Lady Malaysia as a key reference indicator, as it was one of the four suppliers to the “Program Susu Sekolah 1Malaysia” (PS1M).

Managing director Dutch Lady Malaysia Rahul Colaco, said: “The company has always been a committed and responsible corporate player, working with various companies and programmes, upholding our mission to help all Malaysians to move forward in life with trusted dairy nutrition.

“Through the PS1M, we will continue to work together with the Government to ensure the school milk programme is a resounding success. We have world-class facilities, particularly in the areas of food safety and quality, which guarantee our reputable brands are nutritionally healthy for all consumers.”

PS1M is a valuable Government programme that ensures students whose family income is below the poverty level receive a well-balanced diet, thereby increasing the quality of health of these students namely better physical growth, mental health and general well-being.

“Through PS1M, Dutch Lady Malaysia supplies milk twice a week to around 232,489 children attending 769 primary schools in Kelantan and Terengganu, during the school terms,” said Colaco.

Kamalanathan and officers were given an extensive tour of the UHT plant.

He commended the various parties for organising the tour, bringing together key people instrumental in the school milk programme and particularly so for those from Kelantan and Terengganu.
