India’s Online Supermaket giant Grofers recently made a surprising announcement that they had taken a big leap by entering into the packaged milk business with the launch of its milk brand – G-Fresh Milk.
Gofers said that with the launch of ‘G-Fresh Milk’, they are joining the efforts of FFRC set up by FSSAI to fight micronutrient deficiency in India by making fortified milk easily available.
Vivek Prasad, Vice President, Private Brands, Grofers said, “We are excited to enter the whole new market of packaged milk this year. This is a significant step towards delivering substantial value to our consumers through fortified Milk, which is an important part of the daily nutrition. While the milk category is growing exponentially in India, we are making our foray into the dairy portfolio by launching fortified milk to fulfil the micronutrients needs of consumers.”
Vivek Prasad, added, “Our strategic pricing of the product, which is around 12% lower than the competition, coupled with our extensive reach across India will surely lead to increased awareness and improved affordability & thus acceptance of fortified products.”
G-Fresh Milk is currently launched and its accessible in Delhi National Capital Region, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai in the first phase and soon will be expanded to more Indian cities soon.
G-Fresh Milk is an excellent combination of nutrients, taste, thickness and purity sourced from Schreiber Dynamix, the leading dairy manufacturer.
