Any Time Milk (ATM): Amul launches its first Milk ATM
India’s dairy major Amul has launched India’s first milk ATM which will sell milk through “Any Time Milk” vending machines. The 24×7 ATM has been installed at the Amul Dairy gate at Anand in Gujarat.
The ATM machine can store 150 pouches of milk, each of 300 ml. The milk costs Rs 10 per pouch. The milk pouches are kept in the automatic dispensing machine which also keeps them chilled under 4oC.
This service will help daily workers, street vendors or construction workers who return from their work late evening or at night. They would be able to get milk at their convenience since the machine is operational 24 hours.
How does Any Time Milk (ATM) work?
The machine accepts only Rs 10 currency note and after accepting the note one pouch is dispensed from bottom of the machine. The machine will be operated by such people who can put milk pouches in the machine, inform dairy if more supply is needed and also provide Rs 10 note to consumers.
