White Revolution is the revolution in the dairy sector. It introduced a cooperative approach in harnessing milch animal husbandry and eliminate the middleman in the farmer-market supply chain and enhanced milk, production as well as profit to the farmers. It is also called Operation Flood.
The experiment in the co-operative dairy movement by Dr. Verghese Kurien led to an increase in milk production in India. This is called as ‘White Revolution’.
