FrieslandCampina Engro Pakistan Ltd (FCEPL) teamed up with University of Education Punjab to launch the School Milk Program (SMP) at a vibrant party at a local hotel on Tuesday.
Punjab Education Minister Raja Yasir Humayun Sarfraz was the main guest at the event. The ceremony of presenting the school dairy program was also honored by the Minister of Livestock Sardar Hasnain Bahadur Dereshk.
Ali Ahmed Khan, CEO of FrieslandCampina, said in his message on the successful launch of the School Milk program: livelihoods and excellent customer service across all areas.
Ali Ahmed said: “As a dairy farmer’s cooperative, FrieslandCampina has a unique goal of ‘natural’ nutrition, and for this purpose there are three dominant factors, including better nutrition, a decent and adequate standard of living for farmers and, ultimately, now time. and future generations. Nutrition is at the core of our goal. From now on, we will be undertaking many initiatives in the areas of nutrition, optimization and improvement of the technological system. “
Our primary responsibility is to raise awareness of the serious consequences of raw milk consumption among children, which is why we have implemented a number of projects to improve the living conditions of farmers through increased productivity and will continue to invest more in our dairy farming projects. Likewise, the school milk program is also one of our priorities in countries like Pakistan.
While milk consumption in schools has many benefits for schoolchildren, it also has other dimensions, such as farmers selling more, industrial growth and higher job creation.

The SMP event was honored by sponsors from a variety of Pakistani educational institutions, all of whom are passionate advocates for the health and nutrition of a large number of students in the country.
On scientific and regulatory issues, FCEPL stated, “We are working with government and other stakeholders to launch this much needed school milk program initiative that will help improve children’s nutrition and health and are expected to improve their children’s learning outcomes. … “
