Anand means happiness, and as destiny would have it, this place has made a complete transformation to the lives of the local people with AMUL. Today it is referred to as the Milk capital of the country due to what is known as the White Revolution. Dr. Verghese kurian leading man of GCMMF (Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation)  was the pioneer of the White Revolution.

Anand is located in the Gulf of Cambay (Khambhat). It is surrounded by tobacco and white fields. Anand is the true face of rural development in India. A person travelling to Anand would appreciate and experience the power and beauty of rural and urban India. The vast number of best places of education, developing industrial townships and massive presence of agricultural and dairy businesses make the perfect combination for a traveller to witness the boundary where rural and urban sides meet.

For a food lover Anand is the king of dairy products and one would find many ice cream joints. This is the place where the concept of bottled flavoured milk started and the best is available. The local specialities include the sweet dishes sutarapheni and halvasan, and salty snacks.
