Amul Girl to enter merchandising business

Now wear your favorite Amul Girl Polka dot frocks and a range of items like key rings and more.

The adorable Amul girl could soon find her way into living rooms and kitchens, beyond the topical ads on newspapers with the dairy major mulling over launch of merchandise based on her.

According to a top company official, once Amul takes a decision in the next two-three months, a range of items ranging from key rings to fridge magnets and polka dot frocks may be sold over its 8,000 Amul milk parlours across the country.

“We will consider to come up with merchandise based around the Amul butter girl. We will take a final decision on this in the next two to three months,” Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) Managing Director R S Sodhi said. GCMMF sells dairy products under the Amul brand. “We can bring many merchandise like key rings, cups and frocks. We can sell these merchandise through our over 8,000 milk parlours across the country,” he said.

Sodhi was speaking at the book launch Amul India 3.0 here. The book was launched by eminent advertising and media personalities Santosh Desai, Indrajit Hazra, Rahul Da Cunha and Jai Arjun Singh.

“We are known from the campaign. So we are happy,” Sodhi said, adding that the campaign, being run for the last 50 years, has huge credibility.

“Amul girl has commented on everyone. Nobody has displayed anger. Amul girl is like daughter. We know what she is saying is correct,” Sodhi said.
