New Delhi. The Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (Federation), which sells Amul brand of milk and milk products across the country, said on Wednesday that the price of all its brands of milk across the country would be increased by Rs 2 per liter from July 1. A senior official of GCMMF gave this information.
He said that this increase in the price of Amul milk is being done after a long gap of 17 months. The official said the price hike had become necessary because of the increase in the cost of production.
GCMMF Managing Director RS Sodhi said that from Thursday, the price of Amul milk will increase by Rs 2 per liter across India. The new price will be applicable on all Amul milk brands such as Gold, Taza, Shakti, T-Special as well as cow and buffalo milk.
Sodhi said that due to the rise in food inflation, increasing the price of milk was now very necessary. Apart from this, the cost of packaging has also increased by 30 to 40 percent. With diesel becoming expensive, transportation cost has also increased by 30 percent and electricity cost has also increased by about 30 percent. All these factors have led to an increase in the overall input cost.
