The state-owned dairy brand in Karnataka, Nandini, is all set to present itself on a global stage during the cricket T20 World Cup scheduled in June this year.

Nandini is also reportedly going to enter the energy drink market in the United States with ‘Nandini Splash,’ a whey-based energy drink. “We want to make Nandini a focus point in the World Cup. Whey-based energy drinks will be available in the US market during the tournament, and it is going to be a global brand,” MK Jagadish told India Today.

The T20 cricket world cup will begin from June 4, soon after wrapping up the ongoing IPL. The United States of America (USA) and the West Indies will jointly host the World Cup.

The erstwhile BJP government in Karnataka faced a backlash before the assembly elections after Amul announced curd sales in Bengaluru. Former CM Basavaraj Bommai later clarified that Amul will never replace Nandini in Karnataka but both brands will co-exist. He also then explained that the home grown Nandini brand doesn’t face any threat from anyone.
