After a hike in milk prices by Amul, now Mother Dairy has also announced to increase the prices of milk by Rs 2 per litre with effect from Wednesday due to rise in its procurement and other input costs.
Mother Dairy said its price revision will be applicable for all its milk variants – full cream milk will now cost Rs 61 per litre, toned milk Rs 51, and double toned Rs 45. Bulk vended milk (token milk) will now cost Rs 48, up from Rs 46 per litre.
The increase in prices comes in view of a rise in input costs, the companies said.
Meanwhile, for 500 ml, Amul Gold will now cost Rs 31, Amul Taaza Rs 25, and Amul Shakti Rs 28 in Ahmedabad and Saurashtra markets, said Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation, the parent firm of Amul dairy brand.
Mother dairy has witnessed an increase in input costs in the last five months. The company had last increased its milk prices by Rs 2 per litre in Delhi-NCR (National Capital Region) in March.
