Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd (GCMMF), which markets the popular Amul brand of milk and dairy products is the fastest growing dairy organization in the entire world. In 2014, AMUL has risen to 15th rank among the top dairy organizations of the world, by IFCN (International Farm Comparison Network – a leading, global dairy knowledge organization).
This has been the fastest rise by any top-ranking dairy organizations across the globe. Just two years back (in 2012), Amul was ranked #20 in the list of top global dairy organizations. Other top-ranked dairy organizations in the list are multi-nationals operating in multiple countries, while Amul operates primarily in India. Since the milk solids content in Indian milk is much higher, due to presence of Buffalo milk in India, Amul would rank among top 10 dairy organizations, if the ranking was done on basis of milk solids being handled.
In fact, Amul (GCMMF) has been ranked 15th largest dairy organization in the world, both in terms of total milk procurement and also in terms of Turnover per Kg milk procurement.
R S Sodhi, Managing Director of GCMMF informed that the entire credit for this wonderful achievement goes to the 33 lakhs farmers of Gujarat who own Amul and whose entire dedication, hard-work and commitment to excellence has resulted in this monumental accomplishment. Sodhi further added that GCMMF plans to achieve turnover of Rs 22000 crore in the year 2014-15. He expressed confidence that since India is the largest milk producing nation in the world, GCMMF will also one day fulfill its destiny of becoming the largest dairy organization in the entire world and become the center of gravity for global dairy industry.
