Supply chain management (SCM) is the process of planning, implementing, andcontrolling the operations of the supply chain as efficiently as possible. Supply ChainManagement spans all movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-processinventory, and finished goods from point-of-origin to point-of-consumption.
Supply Chain Management encompasses the planning and management of allactivities involved in sourcing, procurement, conversion, and logistics managementactivities. Importantly, it also includes coordination and collaboration with channelpartners, which can be suppliers, intermediaries, third-party service providers, andcustomers.
In essence, Supply Chain Management integrates supply and demandmanagement within and across companies.
1.1 PROFILE OF THE COMPANY1.1.1 ORIGIN AND GROWTH History tells us that Ponlait came to existence as Pondicherry Milk Supply Society
registered as 1st Co-operative Society in the Union Territory of Pondicherry on07-02-1955. Started in a tiny shed its primary objective and focus was to supplymilk to the urban consumers
As time passed the supply society has diversified its activity from consumer toproducers, and concentrated in increasing the milk production by giving variousassistance / incentives to the milk-producing farmers.
The Union started procuring milk from the village producers on quality basis from1970 onwards. To keep pace with the milk production, the Milk Union has alsoset up a Dairy Plant with 10,000 ltrs capacity for processing on 12.04.1971.
During the year 1973 the supply society was converted to co-operative milkproducers Union with objective of shifting its focus on the milk producingcommunity and its welfare.
With the success of the Amul, the National Dairy Development Board hasprogrammed to replicate the Anand pattern (collecting the quality milk from themembers and payment of remunerative price in cash regularly and providing milkproduction enhancement) all over the nation. The Pondicherry Co- operative MilkProducers Union has also taken up the worlds largest Dairy ExpansionProgramme, the Operation Flood during the year 1982-1985. With thelaunching of Operation flood Programme the Dairy Plant was expanded to 50,000ltrs capacity per day. All the milk primary co-operative societies were convertedto Anand pattern societies.
Ponlait has entered the MNEMONIC club conceived, implemented, promoted andpopularized by the NDDB for the entire Dairy Co-operative of the Nation, witheffect from 30.03.2002.
Thus Ponlait was committed to improve the economic and social uplift of therural farming / milk producing community and supplying the urban consumerswith good quality milk
