RailYatri.in launches milk delivery service for babies
Train travel marketplace RailYatri.in has recently launched milk delivery service for passengers wherein warm milk will be delivered in specially designed spill-proof thermo packages.
Milk for babies can easily be ordered through the RailYatri application and delivered at the designated stations, it said in a statement here.
"Train travel can have some severe hurdles when you are travelling with an infant. Our effort is to make sure no mother goes through the agony of seeing her hungry baby cry.
Keeping such emergencies in mind, we will now deliver warm milk for babies in hygienic, spill-proof packages," Manish Rathi, CEO and co-founder, RailYatri.in said here.
RailYatri.in analysis found that in more than 80 per cent instances, trains are not prepared to serve baby food or milk to passengers. Also getting hygienic food after long delays and uncertainties that often mark train travel, is difficult it noted. "Parents usually carry their baby's food and milk along.
However, in case of unforeseen situations like long train delays or if someone forgets to carry baby food, you now do not have to worry...We have taken special care to deliver milk in the best condition, with emphasis on hygiene and quality packaging," explains Rathi. Once the milk is ordered through the RailYatri application, it will be delivered at the berth and passengers do not have to alight from the train to collect it.
Meanwhile, the country's milk production is estimated to have touched 105.42 million tonnes (MT) so far this year, while the target is to achieve 163.74 MT, the Agriculture Ministry said on Thursday. Total milk output stood at 155.5 MT in 2015-16.
