Dairy company Amul on Friday increased milk prices in Delhi-NCR region by Rs 2 per litre due to increase in cost of milk production.
“In the recent past, there has been a substantial increase in raw material cost of cattle feed and labour costs, and this has led to increase in cost of milk production,” Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which sells milk under brand Amul, said.
“We have increased the milk prices by Rs 2 per litre across all variants in Delhi-NCR region,” GCMMF Managing Director R S Sodhi told PTI. Sodhi said the company is also considering increasing milk prices in other markets including those in Uttar Pradesh and Kolkata.
After this recent increase, the Amul Diamond (premium quality) will now cost Rs 50 per litre, up from Rs 48 per litre, while Amul Gold (full cream milk) will cost Rs 48 per litre. Amul Taaza (toned milk) will be available at Rs 38 a litre.
The price of Amul Slim n Trim milk, which is available in 500 ml and lower volume pouches, has been increased to Rs 17 per half litre.
