Dairy Development Corporation (DDC)
Milk and dairy products are an integral part of our diet and especially in Nepal, milk is considered as one of the best sources of protein and vitamin. Hence, milk products, too, are popular in the daily diet of people. Although in Terai region as well as Mountain region along with some rural areas, people keep cows and buffalos as domestic animals for extracting fresh milk for consumption in the family as well as for selling, it is not quite possible in the urban areas. Thus, in order to meet the demands and needs of milk and dairy products in urban areas, many local dairies and corporations are established among which one of the most popular is Dairy Development Corporation, which we commonly know by the name DDC. Rare are the houses which do not use one or more of the DDC products and especially in Kathmandu, rare are the people who have not consumed any of the DDC product during their lifetime. From kids to elders, DDC is popular among all for its variety as well as quality of the products.
Established under Corporation Act 2021 BS, Dairy Development Corporation, popularly known by its acronym DDC, is a complete state owned corporation initiated for the economic development of the poor farming communities.
