The Mehsana District Co-operative Milk Producers’ Union Ltd. was established in the year 1960 with a noble intention of ensuring a fair return to the milk producer’s. It is the district level apex body of milk cooperative societies in Mehsana which aims not only to provide remunerative returns to milk producer’s but also to serve the interest of consumers by providing quality and safe milk and milk products giving value for their money.

The Mehsana Union in its Golden Jubilee year 2010, decided to establish an unaided Educational & Research Institute under the aegis of Dudhsagar Research and Development Association (DURDA), a trust functioning at Mehsana District Co-operative Milk Producer’s Union Ltd. The Institute is named in the memory of the Union’s founder chairman Late Shri Mansinhbhai Patel. The Institute is known as Mansinhbhai Institute of Dairy & Food Technology (MIDFT).

MIDFT offers B.Tech (Dairy Technology) degree course and is affiliated with the Kamdhenu University of Government of Gujarat, Gandhinagar for the award of degree to the students. Through this course, the institute seeks to empower scores of young people, and put India on the international map, for yet another field.
