The packaged milk consumption in Pakistan is 1.1 million liters and that is 4% of all the milk produced in the country. The packaged milk industry is growing at a rate of 20% per annum. The strict legislation that restricts the Gawala-loose milk is further enhancing the growth in this sector. Brands like Milk Pak (owned by Nestle) and Haleeb Milk (from Haleeb Foods) for nearly two decades have directed the dairy market in the world’s fourth biggest milk producing country and has sustained in competition.
