Mandya Milk Union was registered in the year 1987. The Product Dairy, Gejjalagere was then managed by Mysore Dairy.   In the Year 1988 The Product Dairy, Gejjalagere was handed over to Mandya Milk Union.

The philosophy of Union is to eliminate middlemen and organize institutions to be owned and managed by the Milk Producers themselves, employing professionals and to achieve economies of scale to ensure maximum returns to the Milk Producers. 

As a part of long term growth oriented development strategy, the Union is expanding  rapidly by implementing several infrastructure projects and schemes. Union can play an important role in assuring rural prosperity in the lives of our Milk Producers during this millennium.
