Mother Dairy raises the price of cow's milk by Rs 2/liter

New Delhi, September 5 () The main supplier of Mother Dairy milk has increased the price of cow's milk from Rs 2 to Rs 44 per liter in Delhi-NCR, effective as of Friday.

The retail price has increased as the company is paying farmers more for the acquisition of raw milk.

However, there will be no increase in the rates of other milk variants.

Raw cow's milk prices have increased at a rate of Rs 2.50 to Rs. 3 per liter in the last two or three months, said Mother Dairy spokesman.

Therefore, we are obliged to increase the consumer prices of the variant of cow's milk.

The effective prices as of September 6, 2019 are Rs 23 per 500 ml package and Rs 44 per 1 liter package. There have been no changes in the prices of other milk variants, the official said.

With Mother Dairy increasing the price of cow's milk, other competitors such as Amul and Parag Milk can also increase its price.

Mother Dairy supplies about 30 lakh tons of milk, of which 8 lakh liter constitutes cow's milk, in the Delhi-NCR region. In May of this year, the company increased the price of milk by 2 rupees per liter. In the case of cow's milk, there was no increase in the one-liter package, but the half-liter package rate increased by Rs 1. MJH NKD BAL
