Description

In 1946, the milk producers in the state of Gujarat, led by Sardar Vallabhai Patel, started developing revolutionary ideas against the privately owned Polson dairy and established the first cooperative society: the Kaira District Cooperative Milk Producers’ Union Limited (KDCMPUL). The motto “No Cooperation, No Progress!” started spreading very fast and milk was used as a symbol of protest against British hegemony, through a 15-day farmers’ strike.

Amul is the foremost dairy brand name in India and has held its position against competition from international giants such as Nestlé.
