After Amul, Parag, now Mother Dairy goes to hike milk costs by Rs 2 per liter in Delhi-NCR from Sunday in view of rising procurement costs, gasoline and different prices, the corporate mentioned at the moment. Mother Dairy milk can even be costlier in Haryana, Western Uttar Pradesh, and Uttarakhand.
The growth comes days after Amul introduced its annual value hike throughout all milk varieties from March 1 and dairy agency Parag Milk Foods Ltd additionally raised the value of the Gowardhan model of cow milk by Rs 2 per liter with impact from March 1.
Mother Dairy Milk is bought in over 100 cities of India, and the corporate intends to boost costs in different areas within the coming days.
“In view of the rising procurement prices (amount paid to farmers), fuel costs and costs of packaging material, Mother Dairy is compelled to raise its liquid milk prices by Rs 2/litre in Delhi NCR with effect from March 6, 2022,” the company said on Saturday.
From now, full cream milk will cost Rs 59 per liter from Sunday, up from Rs 57 per liter on Saturday. Prices of toned milk will increase to Rs 49, while double toned milk will rise to Rs 43 per litre. Cow milk prices have been hiked to Rs 51 per liter from Rs 49 per litre. Bulk vended milk (token milk) price has been raised to Rs 46 from Rs 44 per litre.
“The surge in farm prices is only being partially passed on to the consumers, with an effective revision of only four per cent, which is lower than the increase witnessed in the farm prices and overall food inflation, thereby securing the interests of both the stakeholders ,” the corporate defined.
“As a responsible organization, Mother Dairy has consistently worked towards providing remunerative prices to milk producers, thereby ensuring the sustainability of dairying and availability of quality milk,” Mother Dairy added.
Mother Dairy had last revised its liquid milk prices on July 11, 2021.
