Difference between Amul, Nestle and Mother Dairy
India has the largest and fastest milk and milk products market in the world. If the growth of this sector is extrapolated, it is observed that in the next ten years production will increase to about three times today’s numbers. India produces milk with the lowest cost at around 40 cents per litre. Amul, Nestle, Britannia, Mother Dairy are some of the major companies that produce milk and milk products in India. However, factors such as lack of adequate amount of fodder and unavailability of veterinary doctors have reduced the yield of milk per animal.
