Amul and Britannia are the only two Indian companies to feature among the top 100 most valuable food brands in the world. India is, after all the largest producer of dairy products in the world – and Amul is the largest producer of milk in India.
Dairy activities form an essential part of the rural Indian economy, serving as an important source of employment and income. India also has the largest bovine population in the world. However, the milk production per animal is significantly low as compared to the other major dairy producers. Moreover, nearly all the dairy produce in India is consumed domestically, with most of it being sold as fluid milk. On account of this, the Indian dairy industry holds tremendous potential for value-addition and overall development. The dairy market in India reached a value of INR 9,168 Billion in 2018.
Amul is the largest food brand in India and world’s Largest Pouched Milk Brand with an annual turnover of US $1050 million (2006-07). Currently Amul has 2.6 million producer members with milk collection average of 10.16 million litres per day. Besides India, Amul has entered overseas markets such as Mauritius, UAE, USA, Bangladesh, Australia, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and a few South African countries.
