As Managing Director of NDDB Dairy Services, which is based on the National Dairy Plan, Sangeeta Talwar's mandate is to usher in the second White Revolution by doubling the country's milk production to 200 million tonnes over the next 10 years. "It is the father of all challenges.
I call it BHAG, short for 'big, hairy, audacious goal', but it's exciting," she says, adding that there is immense scope to create value for farmers. "I have spent many years in building brands. However, doing something for rural India requires a different approach and learning," says Talwar, who started her career with Nestlé India where she launched the Maggi brand.
