A STUDY ON PREFERENCE TOWARDS BRANDED MILK

AND ITS ALLIED PRODUCTS

INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY

India is the largest producer of milk producing more than 100


million tons of milk per annum yet her per capita milk consumption is
around 250gm per day.

India has a population of more than 1 billion with diverse food


habits, cultures, traditions and religions. Regional variations within the
country can be mind bogging. On one hand, the country has plains with
long tradition of milk production and consumption. On the other hand,
there are forest and hilly regions with no tradition of dairying. Most of
coastal belts also do not have much of diary tradition.

Till about year 2000, India was not on the radar screen of most
international dairy companies. Since India was neither a major importer
nor an exporters of daily products. Through the 70s, 80s and 90s India
used to take some milk powder and butter oil as aid. Exports from India
were insignificantly small. From 2000 onwards, Indian dairy products.

Particularly milk powder, casein when products and ghee started making
their presence felt in global markets.

The decade of 2000-10 will be recorded in diary history as the


decade of exports. But the next decade will be different signs of change
are already visible. On one hand India is finding it difficult to sustain
exports of diary products due to low global prices and high domestic
prices. On the other hand some dairy products and companies from India
have been able to make their mark on international markets leading to
increase in their exports even when the overall global market sentiment
has turned negative.

Hope that the study helps get a macro level understanding of the
dairy scenario in India.
