Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar on Friday said there is a need to have a single milk brand to improve marketing of milk and its products in the Maharashtra, on the lines of Gujarat's Amul.

He said the state lagged behind Gujarat in terms of marketing of milk. "In Gujarat, all milk cooperatives supply their product to Amul, which in turn market them very well. Whereas in Maharashtra, there is Gokul, Warna and Aarey. There is vast infrastructure but poor production," he said after inaugurating a new facility of the state-owned Mahanand dairy here.
