Mother Dairy hikes milk prices, check revised milk prices here
From Tuesday, milk lovers have to pay more as Mother Dairy has decided to hike milk prices by Rs 2 per litre in Delhi-NCR market from Tuesday. The company has cited rise in input costs for increase in milk prices.
From now onwards the prices of full-cream milk by Rs 2 to Rs 66 per litre, while toned milk rate has been revised to Rs 53 per litre from Rs 51 per litre. Double-toned milk rate has been increased to Rs 47 per litre from Rs 45 per litre.
Mother Dairy has decided not to raise prices of cow milk and token (bulk vended) milk variants.
“It is an unprecedented year for the dairy industry. We have been witnessing a significant increase in demand of milk and milk products from both consumers and institutions, even after festivals. On the other hand, procurement of raw milk has also not picked up after Diwali as was anticipated,” the company said.
Mother Dairy further said: “This stress on the raw milk prices is being felt across the industry, putting pressure on the consumer prices. In our commitment to continue paying remunerative prices to farmers to ease the impact, we are severely constrained to revise consumer prices of select variants of milk in Delhi NCR effective from December 27, 2022.”
As a responsible organisation, the company said it has always endeavoured to strike a right balance between farmers and consumers. “…therefore, we have been passing the increased input cost to our consumers partially on select variants and in a phased manner.”
