reservation of the sector in 1997. Of the total size
of Rs 15-16bn, around 30-32% is in the hands of
organized sector valued at Rs 4.9bn, rest all is with
the unorganized sector. Among the major players
in this industry Hindustan Lever has a market
share of around 50%, represented mainly by
Kwality Walls brand. Amul with an estimated
market share of 35% is rapidly gaining market
share and lastly Vadilal is the player in the
national market with 8-9% of the market share

Production area

In rural areas, kulfis / ice creams made by small /
cottage industry are popular. The market for

organized sector is restricted to large metropolitan
cities. In small towns and villages, there are
thousands of small players who produce ice-
creams / kulfis in their home backyard and cater to
the local market. Almost 40% of the ice creams
sold in the country are consumed in the western
region with Mumbai being the main market,
followed by 30% in the north and 20% in the south.

Growth promotional

government adopted
the policy of
regarding the ice
cream industry also

that this sector has
shown an annual
growth ranging from 15- 20% per annum for last 1-
2 year. Presently in 1999- 00 it is estimated at
worth of Rs15- 16bn. This growth rate is expected
to continue for another next 2- 3 years because of
lower base

butterscotch a number of fruit flavors, dry fruit

Amul – History

Amul (Anand Milk Union Limited), formed in 1946,
is a dairy cooperative movement in India. It is a
brand name managed by an apex cooperative
organisation, Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing
Federation Ltd. (GCMMF), which today is jointly
owned by some 2.6 million milk producers in
Gujarat, India[1]


AMUL is based in Anand, Gujarat and has been a
sterling example of a co-operative organization's
success in the long term. It is one of the best
examples of co-operative achievement in the
developing world. "Anyone who has seen ... the
dairy cooperatives in the state of Gujarat,
especially the highly successful one known as
AMUL, will naturally wonder what combination of
influences and incentives is needed to multiply
such a model a thousand times over in developing
regions everywhere."[2]

The Amul Pattern has
established itself as a uniquely appropriate model
for rural development. Amul has spurred the White
Revolution of India, which has made India the
largest producer of milk and milk products in the
world. It is also the world's biggest vegetarian
cheese brand [3]

Amul is the largest food brand in India and world's
Largest Pouched Milk Brand with an annual
turnover of US $1050 million (2006-07) [4]

Currently Amul has 2.6 million producer members
with milk collection average of 10.16 million litres
per day. Besides India, Amul has entered overseas
markets such as Mauritius, UAE, USA, Bangladesh,
Australia, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and a few
South African countries. Its bid to enter Japanese
market in 1994 had not succeeded, but now it has
fresh plans of flooding the Japanese markets [5]


Other potential markets being considered include
Sri Lanka.
Dr Verghese Kurien, former chairman of the
GCMMF, is recognised as the man behind the
success of Amul. On 10 Aug 2006 Parthi Bhatol,

chairman of the Banaskantha Union, was elected
chairman of GCMMF

The 'Amul revolution' started as awareness among
the farmers, grew and matured into a protest
movement that was channeled towards economic
prosperity. Over five decades ago, the life of a
farmer in Kheda District was very much like that of
his/her counterpart anywhere else in India. His/her
income was derived almost entirely from seasonal
crops. The income from milk buffaloes was
undependable. Private traders and middlemen
controlled the marketing and distribution system
for the milk. As milk is perishable, farmers were
compelled to sell it for whatever they were offered.
Often, they had to sell cream and ghee at throw-
away prices. In this situation, the private trader
made a killing. Gradually, the realization dawned
on the farmers that the exploitation by the trader
could be checked only if marketed their milk
themselves. Amul was the result of that
The Kaira Union began pasteurizing milk for the
Bombay Milk Scheme in June 1948. By the end of
1948, more than 400 farmers joined in more Village
Society, and the quantity of milk handled by one
Union increased from 250 to 5,000 liters a day. The
success of Amul was instrumental in launching the
White Revolution that resulted in increased milk

production in India. It is termed as "Operation
Flood" by Amul.
Currently Amul has 2.41 million producer members
with milk collection average of 5.08 million
litres/day. Amul's sales turnover in 2004-05 was
672 million US $.

Amul Ice Cream was launched on 10th March,
1996 in Gujarat.
The portfolio consisted of impulse
products like sticks, cones, cups as well as take home
packs and institutional/catering packs. Amul ice cream
was launched on the platform of ‘Real Milk. Real Ice
Cream’ given that it is a milk company and the
wholesomeness of its products gives it a competitive

In 1997, Amul ice creams entered Mumbai
followed by Chennai in 1998 and Kolkata and
Delhi in 2002. Nationally it was rolled out across
the country in 1999.

It has combated competition like Walls, Mother Dairy
and achieved the No 1 position in the country. This
position was achieved in 2001 and it has continued to
remain at the top.
Today the market share of Amul ice cream is 38% share
against the 9% market share of HLL, thus making it 4
times larger than its closest competitor.
Not only has it grown at a phenomenal rate but has
added a vast variety of flavours to its ever growing

range. Currently it offers a selection of 220 products.
Amul has always brought newness in its products and
the same applies for ice creams.

In January 2007, Amul introduced SUGAR FREE &
ProLife Probiotic Wellness Ice Cream, which was
a first in India.
This range of SUGAR FREE, LOW FAT
Diabetic Delight & ProLife Probiotic Wellness Ice Cream
is created for the health conscious.
Amul’s entry into ice creams is regarded as successful
due to the large market share it was able to capture
within a short period of time – due to price differential,
quality of products and of course the brand name.

Marketing strategy

Amul Ice Cream: Marketing Strategy” is a
case study written by Supratim Majumdar and Tirthankar
. Amul brand of ice cream reached a high growth
within 6 years of its launch and defeated multinational
brands of ice cream in Indian market. The experts
attribute this success to the successful planning and
implementation of Amul’s marketing mix tactics. When
the existing brands were struggling for market share,
Amul launched ice creams in 14 flavors and positioned it
as the real ice cream and was priced 30% lower than the
market leader. In 2003, it overtook Kwality Walls to
emerge as a biggest player. The case study gives a brief
history of ice cream industry in India and also the
competition faced by Amul brand in different markets. It
compares Amul with Kwality Walls on the grounds of their
marketability mix viz., product strategies, pricing
atrategies, distribution strategies and promotion
