India a booming ice cream market up for grabs
Today ice creams are equally popular among children and grown-ups. Eating ice creams have become an occasion for celebration. In India alone, the organised ice cream industry has a turnover of around Rs. 1000 Cr. and the market is witnessing a booming growth rate of 12-15% annually.
Per capita consumption of ice creams in India is around 250 ml compared to 23 litres in the US, 18 litres in Australia, 14 litres in Sweden and 800 ml even in neighbouring Pakistan. This presents a huge opportunity for organised players in the ice cream industry.
Amul - The leader in Ice Creams
Since its launch in 1996, Amul Ice Creams have consistently combated competition like Kwality Walls, Mother Dairy and other brands. The customers have shown huge faith in the quality of Amul Ice Creams and today it’s the No. 1 ice cream brand of the country.
Nearly 4 times as large as its nearest competitor, it is now the only national brand. Amul has been able to write such a success story because of the quality of its products, economic pricing and the belief consumers have in the brand.

While growing at a phenomenal pace, Amul has always taken care to offer delectable flavours to all age groups across the society. Over the years, Amul has added diverse flavours to its range of ice creams so that one can have variety of choices.
