Odisha isn’t known for high-flying startups, but Bhubaneswar-based Milk Mantra could change that. Armed with Rs 70 crore in funding, Misra’s dairy venture is expected to touch Rs 130 crore in revenue this year and turn Ebitda positive next year. MilkyMoo, his dairy brand available in Eastern India, has notched 100,000 litres in sales. He is tripling capacity to move into new markets. His secret weapon: MooShake, a healthy milkshake with curcumin, a turmeric extract.
