Amul which sells milk and milk products along with the GCMMF (Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation) as decided to increase the milk prices by Rs 2/litre. These new prices will come into effect from today.
The price of Amul Gold will be Rs 30 for half a litre, Amul Taaza will be Rs 24 for half a litre and Amul Shakti will be Rs 27 for half a litre.
The dairy cooperative defended its decision on Monday by stating, “The increase of Rs 2 per litre translates into a 4% increase in MRP which is much lower than average food inflation.”
“Amul as a policy passes on almost 80 paise of every rupee paid by consumers for milk and milk products to the milk producers. The price revision shall help in sustaining remunerative milk prices to our milk producers and to encourage them for higher milk production,” the GCMMF stated.
