The group was quite impressed with concept and the growth of Amul as a people’s institution and the benefits it provides to farmers.
I am deeply impressed and moved by the vision of Dr. Kurien, which resulted in the beginning of the milk co-operative movement of India. This was the starting point of the 'White revolution" in India. Today, Amul is not only an Indian, but a global brand. I salute Dr. Kurien and his contribution to India and the world.
