Patanjali targets dairy segment, soon after entering frozen vegetables segment
Patanjali's foray into the dairy segment follows on the heels of its entry into the frozen vegetable segment. While Patanjali already has products such as sweet corn, peas, and potato fingers for the latter, the company will soon launch a wide range of milk-based products in tetra packs, apart from regular milk, said Baba Ramdev.
Ramdev: Patanjali milk will be cheaper than other brands
Ramdev added that the Haridwar-based firm would procure milk directly from farmers via its network, and would promote milk products from India-based breeds of cows. Additionally, Ramdev has claimed that Patanjali milk would be cheaper than those of the established brands by Rs. 2. Currently, Patanjali has a network of 56,000 retailers, so distribution is the least of the firm's concerns.
Patanjali's financial targets for next year
"We are aiming to have a business of Rs. 1,000 crore next fiscal. This fiscal, we would have a business of Rs. 500 crore," said Ramdev, speaking at a press conference.
