BJP leader I K Jadeja, who was appointed as the election observer by the state government, announced that the federation members unanimously accepted the proposal to appoint Patel as GCMMF's chairman and Humbal as vice chairman.
The election was necessitated as the two-and-a-half- year term of the outgoing chairman Ramsinh Parmar and vice chairman Jetha Bharwad ended this month.
After his election to the top post, Patel said his priority will be to ensure better procurement prices for milk producers.
"The Sarhad Dairy was set up when (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat. I believe we should not neglect milk consumers. We need to ensure that people get good quality milk and its products at an affordable price," Humbal said.
