ITC to enter dairy biz with ghee by end of quarter

The corporation has set up a milk processing unit in Munger, in Bihar and there are plans to set up similar processing facilities in other parts of the country as well.

ITC, one of the largest FMCG companies, is set to debut its range of dairy product starting with ghee, which would be available in the market by the end of the current quarter, a top company executive said.

"We will bring our first dairy product into the market with ghee by the end of the current quarter," said Sanjiv Puri, president of FMCG businesses at ITC, reported PTI.

In the few years, the Company’s ambitious dairy business will rollout other products subsequent ghee will include packaged milk, butter, cheese and chocolates to take on category leaders such as Amul, Nestle, PepsiCo, Hindustan Unilever and Dabur.

"Work on this plan is at various stages and when we are ready, we will launch products based on how the market evolves," Puri said.

While Puri did not ascertain the exact investment that has gone into setting up the dairy business as it is "an ongoing process", he said a "significant portion" of the targeted investment of Rs 25,000 crore for ITC over the next few years would be in foods.
