Amul Dairy, as a part of its hygienic milk production programme, initiated Total Sanitation Campaign in the rural areas of Anand and Kheda Districts in association with District Rural Development Agency to set up toilets so that no producer member needs to attend nature's call in open. Also, the campaign focuses to mitigate evils associated with open defecation. The mission is not just about bringing a cultural change by imbibing good habits among milk producers but also targeted towards encouraging hygienic practices in the milk supply chain.
This social mission of Amul and its work has been recognized and appreciated by all. Aaj Tak has awarded Amul for this social work with Aaj Tak Care Award in Healthcare Category on 27th August 2013 in New Delhi.
