The Dakshina Kannada Cooperative Milk Producers' Union Ltd. (DKMUL) will soon be selling its milk and milk-based products at select Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) fuel outlets in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts, according to its president Raviraja Hegde.

Mr. Hegde was speaking at a function here on Monday, organised to release ‘Nandini Shubham', a new brand of pasteurised and processed milk, and Nandini paneer of the Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts.
