Amul (Anand Milk Union Limited), formed in 1946, is a
dairy cooperative movement in India.
It is managed by Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing
Federation Ltd. (GCMMF).
AMUL is based in Anand, Gujarat and has been a sterling
example of a co-operative organization's success in the long
term. The Amul Pattern has established itself as a uniquely
appropriate model for rural development.
Amul has spurred the White Revolution of India. It is also the
world's biggest vegetarian cheese brand.
HISTORY OF THE COMPANY:
The story of AMUL inspired ‘Operation Flood' and
heralded the 'White Revolution' in India. It began with
two village cooperatives and 250 liters of milk per day,
nothing but a trickle compared to the flood it has
become today. Today Amul collects processes and
distributes over a million liters of milk and milk
products per day, during the peak, on behalf of more
than a thousand village cooperatives owned by half a
million farmer members. Amul has become a symbol
of the aspirations of millions of farmers; creating a
pattern of liberation and self-reliance for every
farmer to follow.
• The ‘AMUL revolution’ started as awareness among the
farmers grew and matured into a protest movement. Over
four decades ago, the life of a farmer in Kaira District was very
much like that of his counterpart anywhere else in India. His
income was derived almost entirely from seasonal crops. The
income from milch 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 one who gained was the private
trader. Gradually, the realization dawned on the farmers that
the exploitation by the trader could be checked only if
marketed their milk themselves.
• In order to do that they needed to form some sort of an
organization. This realization is what led to the establishment
of the Kaira District Cooperative Milk Producers' Union
Limited (popularly known as Amul) which was formally
registered on December 14, 1946.
• Currently AMUL has 2.28 million producer members with
milk collection average of 5.08 million liters/day.
• Today AMUL is a symbol of many things. (High-quality
products sold at reasonable prices, genesis of a vast cooperative network and a proven model for dairy
development). The Kaira Union began pasteurizing milk for
the Bombay Milk Scheme in June 1948.

GCMMF’S SUPPLY CHAIN
SUPPLY CHAIN AT AMUL:
After the union received the milk, it was tested and if it was
found to be of good quality, it was sent for processing. If the
milk was found to have high acidity, it was used to
make buttermilk. Raw milk was sent through a filter and
clarifier and was pasteurized. For pasteurization, milk was
treated at high temperatures for a specified.
This helped in destroying the pathogens and in maintaining the
quality. After pasteurization, the milk was sent through a
separation machine. Here the cream was separated and
skimmed milk was obtained. According to the demand, the
unions packed the milk after it was pasteurized and sent for
distribution. The cream was marketed as Amul Fresh cream
GCMMF coordinated with various unions to get
a regular supply of milk and dairy products. The
processed milk and dairy products were
procured from district dairy unions and
distributed through third party distributors. To
ensure quality and timely deliveries, GCMMF
and the district unions had several mechanisms
in place. The VCS constantly monitored the
deliveries of the milk collected and ensured that
the milk was picked up on time. The unions
monitored the supplies of milk and the
distribution of finished products.
Amul products are available in over 500,000 retail outlets
across India through its network of over 3,500 distributors.
There are 47 depots with dry and cold warehouses to buffer
inventory of the entire range of products. GCMMF
transacts on an advance demand draft basis from its
wholesale dealers instead of the cheque system adopted by
other major FMCG companies. This practice is consistent
with GCMMF's philosophy of maintaining cash transactions
throughout the supply chain and it also minimizes dumping.
Wholesale dealers carry inventory that is just adequate to
take care of the transit time from the branch warehouse to
their premises. This just-in-time inventory strategy
improves dealers' return on investment (ROI). All GCMMF
branches engage in route scheduling and have dedicated
