Milk brands in India

Whether you are from the North or South, your region does have a popular and dedicated milk brand. But did you know about the rest of them? Well, there are a few brands that are famous throughout the country but there are ample brands that are popular in their own region.

This is a testament to how brands are particular to states and regions and how they are mass-popular among the people there.
