Climbing four steps up in the list of top 20 global milk processors, Amul has emerged as the ninth largest in the survey by the International Farm Comparison Network (IFCN), a global dairy research network, for the 2018.
The Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) — the body that markets brand Amul — was ranked at 18th position which the dairy giant improved further in 2014 when it was ranked at 15th position. Two years ago, it was falling short by four positions in the list of top ten when it was ranked at 13th position.
“We are operating mainly in one state of India – Gujarat whereas all other companies in the list of top 20 are multi-country and multi-location. Yet, our ranking has improved significantly thanks to 3.6 million milk producers of Gujarat,” said R S Sodhi, managing director of GCMMF.
Amul had first entered this list in 2011 when its milk intake volume was at 3.4 million metric tonnes per annum. In seven years, this volume has almost tripled as its milk intake has reached 9.3 million metric tonnes per annum.
Also, the IFCN data states that Amul’s market share in world milk production now stands at 1.1 % while the estimated turnover per kg milk in US $ is 0.7.
It is worth mentioning here that GCMMF’s annual turnover presently stands at Rs 30,000 crore while the unduplicated group turnover of Amul family including that of all the 18 district dairy unions of Gujarat currently stands at Rs 44,000 crore.
