Mother Dairy currently offers ghee through 10,000 retail outlets in 150 locations. Over the next three years, the firm wants to expand its footprint to 200 towns and 50,000 retail shops, according to a statement. 

"Mother Dairy has increased its focus on the ghee category and intends to surpass the market growth rate in the next three years," said Sanjay Sharma, Business Head Dairy Products, Mother Dairy Fruit & Vegetable Pvt.
