Dairy jobs in India are available at large scale. There are more than 400 dairy plants in the country. These plants are involved in production, procurement, storage, processing and distribution of dairy products. To run all these activities a huge man force is required. As a result both the public and the private sector offer openings for dairy technologists. Dairy products are also exported and this makes the industry a foreign exchange earner. Candidates can find jobs in dairy farms, cooperatives, rural banks, milk product processing and manufacturing industries. Research and development is another growing area, crucial for the dairy industry. Teaching is another convenient employment option. One can also establish his own dairying business. Indian Council for Agricultural Research, National Dairy Development Board, National Dairy Research Institute, Anand Milk Union Ltd, Agriculture Universities are among the major employers in India.
