Milk

Bala, the raconteur, reminded me how milk is sold and bought in India. The seller brings the cow over, it stands in front of your house, someone checks that the seller's milking jug is empty (eg, has no water), and the seller proceeds to milk the cow into the jug, and pours out the measure for the buyer (the little boy of the house gets the extra foam at the top). The world is finding ways to get back to that. These days, there are fresh milk vending machines which farmers fill directly from their farms and people pour themselves a frothing mug, a la beer. I am told.

Well the Indian picture is not entirely representative. But in a metaphoric sense not very far from the truth either.

India went from a position at the bottom of the list of milk producing nation to the top, and that too without billions of dollars invested in industrial infrastructure. It is still an efficient, extremely distributed, cooperative of rural milk producers.

Starting a vending machine business may be your first step to owning your own business. It's a good option to choose vending machines to start your business as it's a one time investment and you needn't give the vendors the money to sell as vending machine can sell it by own and get the money also in their box. Vending machine business is one of the most profitable home based businesses.South Florida Vending Machines
