With a 4% hike, Amul, Mother Dairy milk prices set to go up by Rs 2 a litre from today

Leading milk suppliers Amul and Mother Dairy will increase milk prices by Rs 2 per litre with effect from 17 August on account of rising input costs. This is the second hike by Amul and Mother Dairy in nearly six months. In the beginning of March, both had increased milk prices by Rs 2 per litre.
The Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which sells milk and other dairy products under the Amul brand, the other day said it has decided to increase milk prices by Rs 2 per litre in Ahmedabad and Saurashtra of Gujarat, Delhi-NCR, West Bengal, Mumbai and other markets effective from August 17.
The hike will translate into a 4% increase in MRP which is lower than the average food inflation, it said in a statement. “This price hike is being done due to an increase in overall cost of operation and production of milk. The cattle feeding cost alone has increased to approximate 20% compared to last year,” GCMMF said.
Full cream milk will cost Rs 61 per litre from today, up from Rs 59 per litre. Prices of toned milk will increase to Rs 51 while double toned milk will rise to Rs 45 per litre. Cow milk will cost Rs 53 per litre. Bulk vended milk (token milk) price has been raised to Rs 48 from Rs 46 per litre.
