Amul Dairy to market milk in US: reports

Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation, the Indian manufacturer of Amul brand milk and dairy products, plans to market liquid milk in the US within a year, according to reports.

The Business Standard reported earlier today that  Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation plans to distribute liquid milk in the US in 2014.

Following a US launch, the Indian cooperative also has long-term plans to export milk product from the US to neighboring Canada and certain European countries, it added.

“There is definitely a plan to launch it (liquid milk) in the US market. However, it could take some time,” R S Sodhi, Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation managing director, was quoted as saying.

In 2013, Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation announced that it had joined forces with a manufacturer in New Jersey to manufacture ghee (butter oil), paneer (cottage cheese), and shrikhand (strained yogurt) for the US market.

The products will be manufactured at the facility from February this year, according to reports from India.
