Groupe Lactalis, the world’s largest dairy player, has acquired 100% of the shares in Tirumala Milk Products, the second largest private dairy company in South India.

Founded in 1996, Tirumala has a processing capacity of 1.66 million litres per day across seven plants. Since 1996, the company has been involved in the manufacturing, marketing, sale and distribution of a wide range of branded dairy products.

Financial details of the Lactalis acquisition were not released but the deal is believed to be worth between $250 million and $300 million. The transaction marks Lactalis’ entry into India– the world’s largest producer of milk and milk products. The deal marks the largest dairy transaction in India.

Shankar Narayanan, managing director of Carlyle India, says: “During Carlyle’s investment, the company’s revenues grew two and a half times and profits more than quadrupled. We wish the company continued success going forward.”
