After India’s independence in 1947, the economic policies of the Indian Government emphasized the need for local production. Nestle responded to India’s aspirations by forming a company in India and set up its first factory in 1961 at Moga, Punjab, where the Government wanted Nestle to develop the milk economy. Progress in Mega required the introduction of Nestle’s Agricultural Services to educate advice and help the farmer in a variety of aspects. From increasing the milk yield of their cows through improved dairy farming methods, to irrigation, scientific crop management practices and helping with the procurement of bank loans.

Nestle set up milk collection centers that would not only ensure prompt collection and pay fair prices, but also instill amongst the community, a confidence in the dairy business. Progress involved the creation of prosperity on an on-going and sustainable basis that has resulted in not just the transformation of Mega into a prosperous and vibrant milk district today, but a thriving hub of industrial activity, as well.
