Way back in the year 1953, a dynamic young man named Shri. Rattan Lal decided to set up a business of milk procurement and selling. It involved sourcing milk from all over U.P. and then transporting it to Delhi for sale on a daily basis. In the course of his endeavor, Shri. Rattan Lal discerned the immense potential of milk product, the changing tastes of the consumers and the varied demands of the market. With this in mind, he set up the first modern Chilling and Pasteurization Plant in 1970, in the private sector at Hapur (UP), by the name of ‘RATTAN’ Dairy.
In 1985, another dairy products manufacturing unit was established at Okhla, in Delhi, with an installed capacity of 1,60,000 litres of milk per day. This Plant was a reflection how the visionary Shri. Rattan Lal was responding to the changing market needs. Here, manufacturing of skimmed milk powder was started with ghee as a by-product and these products were launched in the market with the brand name of ‘RAJAT‘. Consumers readily accepted these products and in fact this brand became the household name and popular in areas – in the markets of Mumbai, Calcutta, Andhra Pradesh, North-East, Gujarat, Bihar, Haryana, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh.
Again in the year 1992, when the demand of Dairy Products, with well established brand name of ‘RAJAT‘ was going higher and higher, due to the quality of products being maintained and controlled by the well experienced staff, Shri Rattan Lal took the decision to establish even a bigger Dairy Plant At Kundli (Haryana).This plant was equipped to process upto about 3,00,000 liters of milk per day. Skimmed Milk powder, Whole Milk Powder, Dairy Whitener, Butter oil, Butter and Ghee comprised the plant’s product portfolio with a brand name called ‘RAJAT‘ and ‘ Dairy Angel’.
