- The price rise will be effective from Thursday
Anand: Already reeling under the ever-rising prices of petrol and diesel, the public will now have to deal with higher price of milk too. The Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which markets milk and milk products under the brand name of Amul, has decided to increase the price of milk by Rs 2 per litre.
The revised rates will be effective from Thursday, July 1.
Following the price rise, Amul Gold will now cost Rs 29 for 500 ml, Shakti Rs 26 and Taaza Rs 23 for 500 ml.
In its official communication, GCMMF stated that it had not made any price revision in last one-and-a-half years in the fresh milk category.
“… due to rise in costs of energy, packaging, logistics, overall cost of operation has increased. Considering the rise in input costs, our member unions have also increased farmers’ price in the range of Rs. 45 to Rs. 50 per Kg fat which is more than 6% over previous year,” it said.
