Ghee Pouch Packaging Gets a Boost from Growing Demand
India’s dairy sector is expected to triple its production in the next 10 years in view of expanding potential
for export to Europe and the West. India today is the lowest cost producer of per litre of milk in the world,
at 27 cents, compared with the U.S' 63 cents, and Japan’s $2.8 dollars. Also to take advantage of this
lowest cost of milk production and increasing production in the country, multinational companies are
planning to expand their activities here. Some of these milk producers have already obtained quality
standard certificates from the authorities. This will help them in marketing their products in foreign
countries in processed form.
Among the traditional milk products, ghee is the only product, which is currently marketed, in branded
form. The main ghee brands are Sagar, MilkMan (Britannia), Amul (GCMMF), Aarey (Mafco Ltd), Vijaya (AP
Dairy Development Cooperative Federation), Verka ( Punjab Dairy Cooperative), Everyday (Nestle) and
Farm Fresh (Wockhardt).
Patanjali Ayurved's entry into FMCG has impacted the
Indian ghee market in a positive way. After Patanjali's
entry a few years ago, this segment has grown on the
back of an awareness generation about the health
benefits of ghee. Leading player Amul ghee grew by
about 30% in the fiscal year 2016 and Parag Milk Foods
(Gowardhan ghee) clocked a growth of about 27% in
fiscal 2015. In fact, to further grow rural consumption,
Parag Milk Foods has launched smaller sachets priced at
Rs 5 for 9ml and Rs 10 for 18ml meant for one-time use.
Helping dairy manufacturers make the most of this
growing market is Nichrome, with its FILPACK SERVO SMD
ghee packaging machine. A specialist in edible oil pouch
packaging machines, Nichrome has engineered
innovativepackaging for oil and viscous including ghee,
vanaspati, mayonnaise, pasteurised fruit pulp, mango

The VFFS machine is hygienic, built with an enclosed SS cabinet construction. UV sterilization of the

Currently, with the festive season in India, demand for ghee is booming – as traditional home-made
sweets are best cooked in pure ghee. So the next time you buy a pouch of ghee for your home to make
laddoos or simply to cook parathas, chances are it’s packaged by the FILPACK SERVO SMD.
