During the first phase of lockdown in India, a video from Karnataka went viral which showed milkmen throwing away fresh milk in a canal. While the initial few days were difficult for the dairy supply chain, things eased out as milk was an essential item. But, does that mean the problem was solved for all dairy farmers? Not really. In this episode I speak to Rajas Paranjpe, the founder of Bodhishop (https://bodhishop.in/), an online marketplace for A2 cow milk and milk products. Here’s an excerpt from my conversation with him where I talk to him about the Donate Fodder initiative and pick his brains on the issues with dairy industry in general.
