HYDERABAD: The Governor, Sushil Kumar Shinde, on Thursday stressed the importance for States to exchange technology for each other's excellence and for the progress of the needy.

Mr. Shinde launched the `Mahanand' brand of milk marketed by the Maharashtra Rajya Sahakari Dudh Mahasangh Maryadit (MRSDMM), in the twin cities in the presence of the Maharashtra Minister for Dairy Development, Anees Ahmed, and the Minister of State, Hasan Mushrif.

Mr. Shinde recalled how Maharashtra had launched the "One cow and one tree" programme in every rural household in 1975-76 which led to the formation of 20,000 primary milk cooperatives. From scarcity to surplus, the State had come a long way, he said.

The Managing Director, MRSDMM, R.A. Rajeev, said they intended to supply 6,000 litres comprising the homogenised varieties - standard milk with 5.5 per cent fat and 9 per cent saturated natural fatteners (SNF) and the special product with 4.5 per cent fat and 8.5 per cent SNF.

While the toned milk is priced at Rs. 15 a litre, the standardised product comes at Rs. 19, he said.

The Director, Relevant Technologies, distributor for `Mahanand', Yogesh Ralli, spoke.
