It encompasses the entire chain from production of raw material to reaching the consumer with the end product. Accumulation of human capital is important for the development and growth of any enterprise or economy. It believes that technology and capital are replicable inputs but not the human capital. They aim to provide remunerative returns to farmers and members. When the 2001 Gujarat earthquake struck, the Amul Relief Fund donated 50 million Indian rupees to reconstructing schools.

CSR-Sensitive Business Philosophy 
The first step towards discharging the CSR is the business philosophy of the GCMMF. It is two-fold: one, to serve the interests of milk producers and second, to provide quality products to consumers as value for money. The milk producers are paid for their milk in accordance with market forces and realisation of value for their produce.

CSR-Orientation to Distributors & Retailers 
In Amul Yatra the distributors and their salesmen are taken on a visit to
Anand. During this visit they are shown dairy plants, their upkeep, international standards of hygiene and quality, the practices adopted for clean milk production, and above all the cooperative philosophy. Through one to one talk with the farmers, the distributors and salesmen realise AMUL is a large business of small farmers.
