The average American consumes an estimated
50 tons of food in a lifetime. This staggering
amount of food represents the sum of daily
choices each of us makes regarding the type,
quality, and quantity of foods. These critical
choices in turn reflect a complex interplay of
many factors, including family upbringing, religious
or philosophical beliefs, as well as practical
matters, such as the cost and availability of foods
and beverages. Importantly, Americans are
increasingly selecting food for health reasons.

This brings us to the most complicated issue of Pakistan’s Dairy supply chain namely; achieving
a “Level Playing Field” between the middlemen Dhodhis and the processors. At present,
middlemen play a critical role in the Pakistan dairy industry: Without them, a far smaller proportion of
milk would find its way from the farmer to the consumer. To varying extents, processors rely on dhodhis
collecting milk and transporting it to collection centers. It is well known that adulteration of milk occurs
in Pakistan on a broad scale.
