Success Stories :

Cooperative Brand ‘BAKRAW’ Enhancing Livelihood of  Sheep Goat Farmers in Uttarakhand Hills

  • NCDC assisted Rajya Samekit Sahakari Vikas Pariyojana is the largest ever integrated Project in the country at a mega outlay of Rs 3340 Cr and is under implementation throughout the state of Uttarakhand. Hon’ble Prime Minister announced the release of Rs 100 Cr in February 2019 out of which Rs 25 Cr was for sheep and goat rearing project.
  • Capitalizing on the concept of Cooperative Corporate partnership the mega project aims to promote cooperative branding among others in the meat sector by enhancing the value chain supply of fresh Himalayan meat with special focus on creating employment opportunities for rural populace and bringing about economic prosperity through cooperatives.
  • BAKRAW, the Himalayan Goat Meat is a unique brand developed by Uttarakhand Sheep Goat Rabbit Farmers' Cooperative Federation Limited (USGCF) contributing directly towards farmers' livelihood improvement. The Goats reared in the Pahadi regions are tender & juicy and offer consumers to experience meat produced under a world class farm-to-fork modern meat hygiene system. Selected Goats are mechanically dressed in an APEDA-approved, ISO and HACCP Certified, quality and safety assured integrated meat complex. Process integrity is monitored and maintained at all stages from goat rearing to final packaging with complete traceability and assured food safety to deliver hygienic, covid safe, tender and juicy Himalayan Goat meat, the BAKRAW.
  • Aiming to provide market for sheep/goat products and streamline income flow for the farmers, the initiative under the NCDC Uttarakhand Cooperative Development Project is transforming the unorganized sheep and goat sector into a self sustaining organized cooperative sector replete with front and back ended support/linkages resulting in substantial improvement in the livelihood of the farmers making them ‘Atmanirbhar’.
  • Reaching out to over 14000 farmers across 13 districts of Uttarakhand , more than 50% of which are women, presently over 1500 goat rearers in the districts of Rudraprayag, Almora, Bageshwar and Pauri have started getting benefits of the scheme by means of more than 220 Bhed Bakri Samitis.
  • The brand created under 3C model is providing huge market including overseas to the farmers by eliminating the middlemen/ exploitation. Keeping in mind the demand for authentic Himalayan goat meat, the project was developed to ensure supply of unadulterated goat meat to customers which also include defence establishments in Uttarakhand. 
  • First time in India the State Federation has also launched ‘Mutton on Wheels’ a mobile unit with chiller, processing and dispatch. The unit has own staff, CCTV and other requisite arrangements to deliver fresh goat meat door to door.  The Federation has also introduced specialized livestock carriers to reduce stress and other issues for the livestock which is transported in unsuitable conditions.
  • There are more than 1600 completely satisfied customers in Dehradun itself where a customer can trace from which cluster the meat has been supplied to them. This assures the customers and in turn the demand increases. A website along with social media pages by the brand ‘Bakraw’ is in vogue.
