Gujarat dairy co-operative Amul has announced a hike of up to Rs 3/litre on fresh milk effective immediately. The brand last hiked its prices in October by Rs 2 per liter.
Post this revision, the price of Amul Gold will be Rs 66 per liter, Amul Taaza will be Rs 54 per 1 liter, Amul cow milk Rs 56 per liter, and Amul A2 buffalo milk will now cost Rs 70 per liter, it said in a statement.
"This price hike is being done due to an increase in the overall cost of operation and production of milk. The cattle feeding cost alone has increased to approximately 20 percent compared to last year. Considering the rise in input costs, our member unions have also increased farmers' prices in the range of 8- 9 percent over the previous year," it had said.
In December, Mother Dairy increased milk prices by Rs 2 per liter in the Delhi-NCR (National Capital Region).
