    VADODARA: Asia's biggest milk brand, Amul, has followed BJP's PM candidate Narendra Modi to Varanasi. Palanpur-based Banas Dairy, a member the union of the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation that markets Amul, will set up a dairy processing plant in the holy city. The plant will initially process five lakh litres per day with the capacity to double the production.

    Banas Dairy, Asia's biggest milk union, will invest Rs 200 crore to set up this plant, its chairman Parthi Bhatol told TOI on Wednesday. "We've completed the process with UP State Industrial Development Corporation Ltd for land acquisition at Karkhianv industrial area near Varanasi airport," Bhatol said.

    Interestingly, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, whose Samajwadi Party professes diametric opposition to Modi, has offered Amul 30 acres land in Varanasi which, in all likelihood, will be represented by the Gujarat CM. In fact, Yadav has helped Amul increase its footprint in UP, which is India's largest milk producing state, by facilitating land in Kanpur and Lucknow as well, where Banas Dairy has started work to set up dairy plants.

    After the Akhilesh government invited Amul for dairy development in UP, Banas Dairy also acquired 40 acres land in Kanpur and another 20 acres land in Lucknow to set up dairy processing plants, each with Rs 200 crore investment. Like the Varanasi plant, both Kanpur and Lucknow plants will have the capacity to process five lakh litres per day, expandable to 10 LLPD.

    "We will start with milk, curd and buttermilk packaging, and later add ice cream and other dairy products," said Bhatol.

    Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation MD R S Sodhi said, "Amul is the most preferred milk brand in all milk markets in UP including Varanasi, which consumes 75,000 litres milk per day. Since Banas Dairy began procuring milk locally in UP based on Amul model of co-operatives, farmers in UP are getting better remuneration for their milk.

    "Although UP is India's largest milk producing state, the share of organized sector was only one lakh litres milk per day while private players were exploiting the farmers," said Bhatol.
