It was nearly six years ago that CavinKare made its first foray into the dairy business with the launch of Cavin’s milk. The personal care products company’s move into dairy in January 2009 was more by accident than by design, though. “A friend told me about a sick dairy plant that was up for sale in Kanchipuram and it made sense for me to take a look at it, if only for its real estate value,” says CK Ranganathan, chairman, CavinKare.
