Delhi’s First Pasteurised Human Milk Bank Opened
They said ‘a day will come when mother’s milk will be commodified, bottled and sold in market’. And It did.
The first pasteurised human milk bank in Delhi and National Capital Region was on Tuesday opened at Fortis La Femme in New Delhi.
The ‘Amaara’ Milk Bank, set up in collaboration between Fortis La Femme, a specialised hospital for women and newborns in New Delhi, and non-profit organisation Breast Milk Foundation, will make pasteurised human milk available to infants.
“Keeping in mind the physiological inability of the mother in many cases to breastfeed, human milk banks assume great importance,”
Here what people had to say about the same;
They are a human milk bank providing pasteurised breastmilk to premature infants who don't have access to their own mothers' milk.

@DrRachie that might make sense if you were feeding pasteurised HUMAN milk to baby humans.
But you don't give cows milk to baby humans.
