Mother Dairy raised milk prices for the fourth time this year due to higher input costs.
It raised the price of whole milk by Re 1 per liter and premium milk by Rs 2 per liter in Delhi-NCR from 21 November.
This year, the entire dairy industry is experiencing a huge milk demand and supply gap. The mother dairy spokesperson said in a statement that the availability of raw milk was affected due to the increase in the cost of feed, irregular monsoons, etc., which put pressure on the prices of raw milk. This year has led to an increase in the use of basic commodities.”
Whole milk will now cost 64 rupees per liter and the price of premium milk has risen to 50 rupees per litre. There is no change in the price of 500ml packages of whole milk.
The statement said that the continuous mismatch between supply and demand, even after the festive season, led to the stability of raw milk prices. The price review aims to continue supporting farmers with the “right reward” while ensuring quality milk for consumers.
