High milk prices are likely to persist till October, and so are demand-supply imbalance and stress in the availability of raw milk and fodder. Any disturbance in the dairy sector takes two-three years to be normal, says Manish Bandlish, managing director, Mother Dairy, in an interview to Pratigya Yadav. Edited excerpts.
How was the company’s growth in 2022-23?
We had a solid growth path in the past one year. After Covid, generally, consumption in the dairy sector has been strong. We have seen growth in milk categories including fermented products like curd, chhach, and ice cream, which were dormant in the previous two years. Summer products had the maximum consumption. If we compare with the Covid period, growth has been more than 100 per cent.
