In the year 1946 the first milk union was established. This union was started wi
th 250 liters of milk per day. In the year 1955 AMUL was established. In the yea
his union selected the brand name AMUL in 1955. The brand name AMUL means AMULYA.
This word derived from the Sanskrit word AMULYA which means PRICELESS. A quality con
trol expert in Anand had suggested the brand name AMUL. Amul products have been in
use in millions of homes since 1946. Amul Butter, Amul Milk Powder, Amul Ghee,
Amul spray, Amul Cheese, Amul Chocolates, Amul Shrikhand, Amul Ice cream, Nutram
ul, Amul Milk and Amulya have made Amul a leading food brand in India. (The tota
l sale is Rs. 6 billion in 2009). Today Amul is a symbol of many things of the h
igh-quality products sold at reasonable prices, of the genesis of a vast coopera
tive network, of the triumph of indigenous technology, of the marketing savvy of
a farmers organization. And have a proven model for dairy development (Generally
known as ANAND PATTERN). In the early 40s, the main sources of earning for the far
mers of Kaira district were farming and selling of milk. That time there was hig
h demand for milk in Bombay. The main supplier of the milk was Polson dairy limi
ted, which was a privately owned company and held monopoly over the supply of mi
lk at Bombay from the Kaira district. This system leads to exploitation of poor
and illiterate farmers by the private traders. The traders used to decide the pr
ices of milk and the farmers were forced to accept it without uttering a single
word. However, when the exploitation became intolerable, the farmers were frustr
ated. They collectively appealed to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, who was a leading
activist in the freedom movement. Sardar Patel advised the farmers to sell the m
ilk on their own by establishing a co-operative union, Instead of supplying milk
to private traders. Sardar Patel sent the farmers to Shri Morarji Desai in orde
r to gain his cooperation and help. Shri Desai held a meeting at Samarkha villag
e near Anand, on 4th January 1946. He advised the farmers to form a society for
collection of the milk. Amul (Anand Milk Union Limited), formed in 1946, is a da
iry cooperative movement in India. It is managed by Gujarat Co-operative Milk Ma
rketing 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 de

Amul has spurred the White Revolution of India. It is also the world s biggest v
egetarian cheese brand.
