Women, who have a key role in looking after the milk animals, go to the cooperative twice a day to market their milk. - - World Food Programme "Operation Flood". This WFP-supported project aims at producing a virtual "flood" of rurally produced milk for India's four main populous cities (New Delhi, Calcutta, Bombay and Madras). WFP has agreed to supply 126,000 tons of dried skimmed milk and 42,000 tons of butter oil for recombining and mixing with locally produced whole milk. It is the largest WFP - assisted project, involving a total contribution of over $160 million. "Operation Flood" was designed by the National Dairy Development Board of India, based on the pattern of a dairy project in the State of Gujarat called the Anand Dairy Project. The structure of the Anand Project comprises a system of Milk Producers' Cooperative Societies at the village level, and a District Cooperative Milk Producers' Union at the district level.
