Chandigarh: Haryana's dairy cooperative federation will open milk booths under VITA brand at fuel pumps of Indian Oil Corporation in the state.
Haryana Dairy Development Cooperative Federation will sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the oil company for opening of VITA milk booths at viable locations of IOCL petrol pumps in Haryana, said an official spokesman.
A proposal to this effect has been approved by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
He said as a result of this decision, not only the sale of milk and milk products of VITA would increase, but it would also enable the milk unions to get additional income from sale of every pack of milk and milk products at these outlets.
He said possibilities would also be explored to set up booths of VITA in Chandigarh Union Territory as Punjab's Milkfed has for Verka.
This would also generate employment opportunities and enable the people to buy VITA products at different locations.
