Amul Fresh Paneer will be available at all Milk outlets in Ahmedabad round the year in the convenient sizes of 200 g Block priced at Rs. 25/- and 1 kg Block priced at Rs. 115/-.

It has high fat content and low moisture content as compared to loose Paneer available in the market.

Since it is available in tamperproof sealed poly- pouches, the quality of Amul Fresh Paneer does not get affected and can be stored in the refrigerator for 15 days. Amul Fresh Paneer is easy to use as it can be cut, fried & grated as per the choice.
