Leading milk supplier Mother Dairy on Monday said it will focus on increasing its market share in the organised ghee segment, having an estimated market size of Rs 40,000 crore, by expanding retail chain distribution five times over the next few years. At present, Mother Dairy sells ghee through 10,000 retail stores in 150 towns.
The company plans to expand its presence to 200 towns and 50,000 retail outlets over the next few years, the company said in a statement.
Sanjay Sharma, Business Head – Dairy Products, Mother Dairy Fruit & Vegetable Pvt Ltd said, “Mother Dairy has stepped-up focus on the ghee category and has plans to outpace the industry growth rate in the next 3 years. Our efforts are aligned towards clocking a growth rate of more than 20 per cent, compared to the industry’s growth rate of 13 per cent”.
“However, the organised ghee market, in 2019, was valued worth over Rs 400 billion and is expected to clock a healthy CAGR of around 13 per cent during 2020-2026,” Sharma said.
The availability of ghee will also be enhanced across many leading e-commerce channels.
