The BBA degree course has its own distinguished and unique solidarity like other professional courses. One of its basic requirements during the term for the student of BBA is to undertake a visit to any industry so that they can get a first-hand experience on the concerned subject and the industry.
The objective behind this type of practical training at first year is to develop among students feeling of industrial environment and consciousness of business partners.
Inspiria Knowledge campus had organized an industrial visit on 24.11.18. to Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd, Siliguri. A team of 52 students from BBA 1st year along with three faculty members, Mr. Arnab Sen, Mr. Bijendra Sharma, and Ms. Shristika Chhetri successfully toured the Amul factory. Students were segregated into three groups, and three different expert professionals from the industry guided them with the explanation on the practical implementation of the machinery and the different procedures for the production of milk and milk products like paneer, lassi, and cheese.
Students were thrilled to know the history of Kaira farmers and their initiative in freedom struggle with the guidance of Sardar Vallabbhai Patel, which led to the establishment of Kaira District Cooperation Milk producer’s union Limited. With remarkable effort and quality, GCMMF endeavors to satisfy the taste and nutritional requirements of the customers of the world.
The students learned the complete process behind the making of paneer & ghee, tetra packing of milk and milk processing. They were also told the process of pasteurization, packaging and transporting of the milk. A rapid round of quiz was organized where the students actively won Amul chocolates. The faculty members and the students were served with refreshments like Amul Cheese balls and French Fries, which are yet to be launched in the market.
It was an insightful and interactive visit, where the students understood the production processes, products, and operation of one of the best examples of cooperative achievement in the developing economy.
Mr. Subhasis Kundu was highly hospitable and approachable to all the queries of the students. Inspiria looks forward to such visits filled with infotainment in future.
