Milk was always manufactured and consumed in bulk in India. But with the rise in disposable incomes, the demand for milk and related items are on a continuous rise. Milk is said to be among the most important part of the diets of Indians after wheat and rice.

Milk production in India ranges from rural areas to highly urbanized ones. In the rural areas, every farmer having one or two cows or buffaloes yields around 3 litres of milk per animal. India is highly acclaimed for its high contribution of buffalo milk because of factors like high-fat content and a host of other nutrients.

India happens to be the highest producer of milk in the world. India contributes almost 65% of the world's total buffalo milk. With the advent of modern technology, India has risen from an insignificant amount of 200,000 litres per day (lpd) of milk in 1951 to 20 million litres per day in 2010. The country is home to almost 400 dairy plants.

The milk market in India does not have many active brands. The one major brand that has been dominating the dairy industry in India for quite a few decades is Amul. Since Indians are very peculiar and choosy about the milk that they consume they do not like to try out other brands. They like sticking to trusted brands and the brand that has occupied a major mind share of the Indian population as far as milk is concerned is Amul. It can easily be called the top milk brand in India.

The undisputed Top Milk Brand in India is Amul. Established in 1946, the company deserves maximum credit for making India the world's largest milk and milk products producer. Evolved over the years as the most preferable liquid milk brand in the Indian subcontinent Amul churns out a turnover of almost Rs. 8,000 crore annually. According to industry experts, the production forecast for the next year happens to be even better with an estimated turnover of Rs. 10,000 crore. The best thing about the brand is that it has not only penetrated the urbanized areas but the rural market as well. Apart from milk are the manufacturers of a host of allied products like Ghee, butter, cheese, powder milk, flavoured milk, curd, cold coffee, Lassi etc.

In 2020, India's dairy industry was worth INR 11,357 billion.
