Pay More To Buy Your Mother Dairy And Amul Milk Packets
This is the second time in the year 2022 that the milk suppliers raised the rates of their products. The companies decided to hike the prices as they experienced a rise in their input costs and other procurement factors as well.
A Mother Dairy official said that the dairy company is seeing a hike in its overall budget for the operation and production of milk. They saw this rise in the last 5 months. From the cost of feeding the cattle to increasing the farmers’ prices, the overall input costs are increasing, and hence the company decided to increase the price by ₹2 per litre.
The Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation sells milk and dairy products under the name of the Amul brand. They too increased their prices. Amul has also hiked the price of its milk packets and the raise is effective in cities such as Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Ahmedabad, Saurashtra, West Bengal, Gujarat, and every shop that sells Amul milk packets.
Amul stated in a statement that this increase of ₹2 per litre is a hike of 4% in MRP. It is even lesser than the present average food inflation.
