It was set up to solve the milk scarcity problem in the state.

Srikumar shared about launch of chocolate flavored Chena poda on the auspicious day of Janmashtami.

One of his social media post read ; Reinventing a quintessential dessert – and getting it right! The purist in me decries it, the eccentric loves it – and somewhere, I feel many will love this awesome product, crafted, innovated, branded and reimagined by the Milk Mantra  team.

Team behind the development

Kudos to Moo team members especially Satabdi Suvankari Bisoi and Himanshu Srivastava who came up with the idea and took it up with their seniors, who in turn supported it, undertook numerous experiments & trials to get it right – all that in 30 days.

Happy that innovation and execution has permeated across levels and is no longer only top driven; it marks a special milestone in a company’s evolution
