“We operationalized standards for camel milk today. We took two years to come out with standards. The standards will help better marketing of camel milk in cities,” FSSAI chairman Pawan Agarwal said at an exhibition organised by NGOs ‘Sahjeevan’ and ‘Foundation for Ecological Security’ in Delhi.

Following the setting of standards, Amul announced it will be selling camel milk in the next three months, starting with distribution in Ahmedabad followed by cities across India.

“Now, the plant is ready in Kutch. We are going to market camel milk in the next three months. Initially, it is will be sold in Ahmedabad through Amul booths in 500 ml bottle,” said Hardeep Banga, the GCMMF marketing manager.
