Ice creams are a real relief from the scorching summers in India. Loved by one and all ice creams are the best way to beat the heat in India. As soon as summers approach in India the streets are full of vibrant pushcarts belonging to the different ice cream brands that almost force you to pick up a frostik, a cup or a cone. The ice cream market in India has witnessed a steady growth over the last few decades. The growth in the Ice cream industry has been primarily due to a strong distribution network and a good cold chain infrastructure. The ice cream market in India is divided into the branded market and the grey market or the unbranded market. The branded market is currently 100 million liters per annum valued at ` 800 crores. The grey market consists of small local players and cottage industry players.' Currently the ice cream industry in India is worth ` 2,000 crores. The per capita consumption of ice cream in India is about 300 ml, as compared to the world average of 2.3 liters per annum.

Try to find out what are the main hindrances in the AMUL ice cream sales in Kerala and suggest methods to counter it.
