Amul


Amul is an Indian dairy cooperative, based at Anand in the state of Gujarat, India. Amul is often referred to by the unofficial backronym: Anand Milk Union Limited.

Amul was founded by Dr. Verghese Kurien in 1946. The brand is managed as a cooperative body, the Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd. (GCMMF), which today is jointly owned by 3.03 million milk producers in Gujarat.

Amul spurred India's White Revolution, which made the country the world's largest producer of milk and milk products. In the process Amul became the largest food brand in India and has also ventured into markets overseas.

Hike in Milk prices

The Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) which operates the Amul brand has decided to increase milk prices from October 3. The price of Amul Gold milk will rise by Rs. 2 per litre, while the prices of other brands of Amul will be hiked by Rs. 1 per litre. The reason for the hike in prices are said to be the rise in diesel fuel rates which has added to the transportation cost. The increase in gas price and rise in cattle feed stock are said to the other reasons.

In 2012, Amul has hiked the prices of milk in April and October.
