The farmer members of the Board are elected for a five-year term from among the Presidents of the affiliated village level Anand Pattern Co-op. Societies. The very fact that a majority of the Board members are elected farmers ensures that the business policies of the Union are always governed with the interests of dairy farmers foremost in mind. In addition, the fact that the assets of the Union including dairy plants, chilling plants and the expertise and experience of its human resources are under the control of the farmer dominated board, ensures that the instruments of development are firmly in the hands of the beneficiary farmers. Thus MRCMPU Ltd. is at the same time, both a business enterprise as well as a development institution, and is owned by a large body of farmers spread throughout the rural hinterland of North Kerala.

This organization is also an example of a scheme of things where farmers are helped to help themselves, instead of being forever dependant on govt. doles and rescue packages or being forever fearful of production quotas that are characteristic of many Western Economies. This is also a silent revolution which daily transfers millions of rupees from the comparatively affluent urban consumers to their poorer brethren living in the villages, and that too without the involvement of any middleman or govt. agency.
