GCMMF, which sells milk under the Amul brand, has hiked the prices of Amul Gold and buffalo milk by Rs 2 per litre each across all markets except Gujarat. “Prices have been increased by Rs 2 per litre for Amul Gold and buffalo milk due to increase in fat prices,” Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) managing director R S Sodhi told PTI.

Prices have been raised for all markets except Gujarat, he added.

GCMMF passes on almost 80 paise of every rupee paid by consumers for milk and milk products to the milk producers. Apart from Gujarat, GCMMF mainly sells milk in Delhi-NCR, West Bengal and Mumbai. GCMMF sells more than 150 lakh litres of milk per day and out of the total quantity, Delhi-NCR accounts for nearly 40 lakh litres per day.

Correspondingly, Mother Dairy has also hiked prices of full cream milk and cow milk by Rs 2 per litre across the Delhi-NCR citing rising input prices. A Mother Dairy spokesperson said that the decision was taken because of the constant surge in the price of raw materials over the past two months.

“The dairy industry has been experiencing a consistent surge in raw milk prices, which has increased by about Rs 3/kg in the last two months alone, owing to multifold increase in varied input costs. Increased fodder prices and low rainfall in some northern states have aggravated the situation,” the spokesperson said.

We are therefore compelled to revise prices to support farmers and ensure the availability of quality milk for consumers. In our endeavour to limit this impact on consumers, we are only revising the prices of Full Cream and Cow Milk variants by Rs 2/litre. The revision in these two variants is effective from October 16, 2022

The spokesperson also informed that the price hike will be effective from October 16.
