After procurement, the milk is taken for the all-important quality testing and weight checks. HAP is the world’s first dairy company to develop and use thermal battery-based technology in its BMCs, for chilling milk immediately after procurement. It has worked extensively with a Boston-based US company in this regard. The bulk milk coolers run on thermal batteries which store electricity whenever available from the grid. This helps in chilling the milk right at source, even in rural areas with irregular power supply.
The company employs at least two types of testing: Gerber Method and Eko Milk Analyzers. The milk is then subjected to pasteurization, homogenization and bacteria clarification — all performed by a staff of professionals with the single-minded goal of adhering to the highest standards of quality.
HAP sources over 80% of its entire industrial power requirement from renewable sources like solar power and windmills. The Ekomilk analysers, electronic weighing scales, display, stirrer, scanner, tablet and printers in all HMBs operate entirely on solar powered batteries. None of the company’s HMBs has or requires any diesel generator backup for collecting milk, thereby avoiding environmental and sound pollution. Every HMB building has a rooftop solar panel and battery that can store 900 watts of power.
