Amul, Mother Dairy, Milk Prices Surge By Rs 2

Amul

The price of Amul Gold will be Rs 31 for half a liter whereas Amul Taaza will be sold at Rs 25 for 500 ml, and Amul Shakti will be sold at Rs 28 for 500ml.

Prices of Amul and Mother Dairy packaged milk have been hiked by Rs 2 per liter. This is the second hike by the companies this year. The new prices will be effective from tomorrow.

The price of Amul Gold will be Rs 31 for half a liter whereas Amul Taaza will be sold at Rs 25 for 500 ml, and Amul Shakti will be sold at Rs 28 for 500ml.

The surge of Rs 2 per liter amounts to a 4% increase in MRP which is lower than average food inflation.

Amul had increased prices earlier in February this year. After this, Amul Gold milk was priced at Rs 30 per 500 ml, Amul Taza was priced at Rs 24 per 500 ml, and Amul Shakti at Rs 27 per half a liter.

The reason behind the price rise is said to be due to an increase in the overall cost of operation and production of milk.

The cattle feeding cost alone has increased to approximately 20% compared to last year, Amul stated.

“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,” Amul said in a statement.

In March this year, Mother Dairy increased milk prices by Rs 2 per liter in the Delhi-NCR (National Capital Region). Mother Dairy is one of the leading milk suppliers in the Delhi-NCR market and sells at least 30 lakh liters per day in poly packs and through vending machines.

According to a company official on Tuesday Amul is “compelled” to raise its liquid milk prices by Rs 2 per liter effective August 17, 2022.

The new prices will be applicable for all milk variants. Full cream milk will cost Rs 61 per liter from Wednesday, up from Rs 59 per liter.

Prices of toned milk will increase to Rs 51 while double toned milk will rise to Rs 45 per liter. Cow milk prices have surged to Rs 53 per liter.
