The average selling price of milk rose 5.2% year-on-year, boosting the company's revenue from the dairy business - its biggest segment - by nearly 19% to Rs 922 crore.
Earlier this month, analysts at HDFC Securities said the demand for organised dairy products in India is going up due to rising income and a preference for healthier options.
