A Profile and Success Story of KOF:
Government of India in mid 1980’s started the “Technology Mission on Oilseed and Pulses” (TMOP) in order to enhance productivity in oilseeds and make India self sufficient in edible oil. On 22.8.1984 Government of Karnataka approved the implementation of Nation Dairy Development Board’s (NDDB) project “Restructuring Edible Oil& oilseeds Production and marketing’ in Karnataka keeping in mind the objectives laid down in the TMOP. The Karnataka Co-operative Oilseeds Growers Federation Limited (KOF), the Agency Entrusted with implementation of the Project, Was registered on 26th October 1984,under the Karnataka Co-operative Societies Act. The project, which was inspired by the Anand Model of Milk Co-operatives, is designed to create an integrated Co-partite System of production, procurement, processing of Oilseeds and marketing of edible oil and its bi-products. This project aimed at establishing a direct link between the producer and the consumer by eliminating middlemen. Village level primary co-operative society’s were organized by making the oilseeds growers as members in turn these primary co-operative societies became the members of the apex body at the state level.
To provide better service to the farmers and effective implementation of the project, the structure has been re-organized to a three tier cooperative structure with the village level Oilseeds Growers’ Cooperative societies affiliated to Regional Unions organized at the district level and in turn the Regional Unions have been affiliated to the state level Federation. Accondingly, The three Regional Unions, registred on 03rd June 1990, are as shown below,
