Amul Dairy to buy production unit in Wisconsin, US

Amul, which will be the first dairy union in India to start a dairy plant on foreign land, will set up its manufacturing plant in Wisconsin, US.

Amul Dairy, also known as the Kaira District Cooperative Milk Producers Union Limited (KDCMPUL), is all set to buy its first dairy in the United States. Amul, which will be the first dairy union in India to start a dairy plant on foreign land, will set up its manufacturing plant in Wisconsin, US.

The company has entered into a tripartite agreement with the Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (the apex body of all district dairy unions of Gujarat that markets brand Amul) and a local partner in the US. Through this agreement, Amul can manufacture three dairy products, namely paneer, ghee and shrikhand, in Waterloo village located in upstate New York.

Wisconsin accounts for almost 27% of total cheese production and is the top producer of cheese in America.

A top company official said, "We are looking at options to expand our US operations so that we can service the market there better. Presently, from the Waterloo facility, we can at best service the eastern coast. The best option is to start our own operations there."

Ramsinh Parmar, Chairman of Amul Dairy, said, "Once the directors, who are already in the US to scout for a dairy plant for acquisition, return, we will be at a position to understand how to go ahead with the acquisition."

Presently, Amul’s total sales are at almost Rs 60 crore in the US market including dairy products that are locally manufactured there and those exported from India.
