Mother Dairy Story
Mother Dairy
Happy Food. Happy People.
Focused on building a sustainable "Quality and Food Safety Program"


Mother Dairy established its Innovation Centre, the first of its kind in India’s organized Dairy & Food sector, in April 2010 at its central location in Delhi,. It has been setup for the purpose of developing healthy, nutritious and convenient Dairy and Horticulture products.

Mother Dairy’s R&D Team is continually engaged into development of novel products and innovative packaging systems as well as renovating its existing products at its state of the art Innovation Centre. The major thrust has been on developing functional foods targeting consumers’ health & wellness, supplying products with the taste of western classic delicacies and replicating the home made taste in Indian traditional products

The Centre is fully equipped with state of the art modern laboratory equipped with sophisticated lab scale processing equipment. In order to support the analytical and shelf life studies associated with product development activities, the Centre is equipped with highly sophisticated instruments. Packaging innovations are also taken up at Innovation Centre with various packaging materials and those are tested for various parameters which include Tensile and Seal Strength, Bursting Strength, Automated Leak Detection, Compression Strength etc.

Product Development Process
The product is developed after thorough market analysis and consumer preferences with the aim of providing healthy choices at reasonable price. This has also enabled improvising the existing product packaging and taste to constantly delight our consumers.

New Product Development process includes Concept Development, Lab trials, Shelf life Studies, Consumer Research. Packaging Material Development is also carried out at Innovation Centre. We select quality ingredients from reputed manufacturers across the globe meeting all Quality and Food Safety requirements.

Food Safety is of utmost importance while designing the manufacturing process for each new product. R&D Scientists monitor and control first few batches of commercial production to ensure conceptualized quality and organoleptic characteristics of new products.

Product Innovations
For the first time in India, we introduced Probiotic Dahi “b-Active” and Probiotic Drink “Nutrifit”. As a result of extensive research, we enriched the ‘Probiotic’ products with dietary fiber to have Synbiotic effect and make it a healthier option. 

‘Dietz Sugar Free’ icecream was launched which is suitable for diabetic patients, calorie conscious and containing high dietary fiber. Human clinical studies were conducted in collaboration with Fortis hospital, New Delhi to confirm the safety and advantage of sugar free ice cream for diabetic population. Lic Lolleezz was also introduced with Vitamin C and flavors more appealing to the taste buds of Indians.

Products developed in the in fresh dairy product range includes: Kheer, Bottled Lassi (variants: Plain, mango and strawberry), Mishti Doi, Tadka Chach etc.
In the frozen category, Kulfi in traditional flavors viz., Rose, Pan and Rabri, Dollies in Raspberry & Guava chilly, Indian Classics, Western Classics and Dietz Sugar Free are the most recent product ranges.
