Dairy major Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which sells products under the Amul brand, is planning to invest about Rs. 2,500 crore to raise its milk processing capacity to more than 38 million litres per day (mltpd) in the next four years from the current capacity of 28.1 mltpd. GCMMF Managing Director R. S. Sodhi said the cooperative is looking to raise the capacity by 2020. “As of now, we are looking to establish one plant each for milk processing in Kolkata and Mumbai and two more plants in Gujarat. Besides this, we have plans to raise the capacity in a few existing plants,” he said. The cooperative has about 60 processing plants, of which 40 are in Gujarat. About 50 per cent of Amul’s turnover comes from milk sale, commodity business contributes 5-7 per cent and the rest comes from the value-added products segment.
