Iconic Indian Brand Amul Launches Fresh Milk in the US

In a significant move, the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), the organization behind the iconic Amul brand, is set to launch its fresh milk products in the United States for the first time. This expansion marks a major milestone for the brand, as it aims to cater to the Indian diaspora and Asian population in the US.

Catering to Global Tastes

Within a week, GCMMF will introduce four variants of fresh milk in the US market. The milk collection and processing will be handled by MMPA, while GCMMF will be responsible for the marketing and branding of Amul fresh milk.

Initially, the fresh milk will be available in major cities such as New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Washington, Dallas, and Texas, among others. GCMMF’s primary target audience will be non-resident Indians (NRIs) and the broader Asian population residing in the US.

Expanding Product Range

In addition to fresh milk, GCMMF plans to launch other popular dairy products like paneer, curd, and buttermilk in the US market in the near future. This move aims to cater to the diverse tastes and preferences of the Indian and Asian communities, offering them a taste of home.

Global Ambitions and Growth

GCMMF’s foray into the US market is a significant step in its global expansion strategy. The organization has already established an export presence in around 50 countries worldwide.

During the 2022-23 fiscal year, GCMMF achieved a remarkable turnover of approximately Rs. 55,000 crore, marking an impressive 18.5 percent growth compared to the previous year. This success underscores the brand’s popularity and the increasing demand for its high-quality dairy products.

With the launch of Amul fresh milk in the US, GCMMF is poised to tap into the vast potential of the global market while catering to the growing appetite for authentic Indian dairy products among the diaspora and broader communities alike.
