Amul, an iconic brand from India, primarily engages in dairy and dairy-derived products. Revered as the “Taste of India,” its offerings range from milk, butter, and cheese to ice creams and chocolates. With India as its dominant market, Amul has also penetrated international shores, making its presence felt in the Middle East, the US, and select Asian countries. A unique cooperative model governs the company, with the Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd. (GCMMF) at its helm, uniting millions of rural dairy farmers.

Meaning and history

Amul’s story is intertwined with India’s socio-economic fabric. Inaugurated in 1946 in Gujarat, its creation was a response to exploitative trade practices by local merchants. Instead of individual dealings, farmers unified under the Kaira District Cooperative Milk Producers’ Union Limited, forming Amul.

Under Dr. Verghese Kurien’s leadership, Amul instigated the White Revolution in the 1970s, turning India into the world’s largest milk producer. His brainchild, the “Anand pattern” cooperative system, amalgamated dairy farmers, emphasizing decentralized processes and direct market access.

Ownership didn’t “change” in the traditional sense. It flourished as a cooperative, owned by over 3 million milk producers in Gujarat, managed by the Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd. (GCMMF). The farmers decide the company’s direction and share its profits.

From producing milk, Amul diversified its product line over time, introducing items like cheese, butter, and chocolates. Innovations like milk powder from buffalo milk and producing tetra-packed milk showcased their ingenuity.

Internationally, Amul products found markets in over 50 countries. The brand symbol, the Amul girl, became a cultural icon in India, commenting humorously on topical events.

Today, Amul is not just a dairy brand; it’s a movement that champions cooperative efforts, grassroot empowerment, and quality products.



The logo showcases the word “Amul” in a bold, vibrant red hue. The typography has a distinctive flair, with each letter possessing elongated and curvaceous tail ends. The “A” begins with a pronounced, wavy curve, resembling a stylized wave, while the letters “m”, “u”, and “l” conclude with downward-pointing, tapering extensions. The overall design exudes dynamism and a touch of playfulness, set against a pristine white backdrop.
