After Amul, Mother Dairy, Raises Milk Prices by Rs 2 per liter


Due to rising input costs, leading milk supplier Mother Dairy has increased milk prices in Delhi-NCR and other cities by Rs 2 per liter from Sunday. The last time milk prices were changed in December 2019.

Mother Dairy justified the increase by claiming that the cost of obtaining milk from dairy farmers has increased by 8-10% since last year. Other operating expenses have risen as well.

Amul raised milk prices by Rs 2 per liter across all cities on July 1. “With effect from July 11, 2021, Mother Dairy is constrained to boost its liquid milk rates by Rs 2 per litre in Delhi NCR,” the company said.

From July 11 onwards, prices in essential markets such as east and central Uttar Pradesh, Mumbai, Nagpur, and Kolkata will be updated by Rs 2 per liter on the present MRP those markets, the company added.

Mother Dairy milk is sold in more than 100 cities across the nation. In Delhi-NCR, it sells roughly 30 lakh liters of milk per day, with a total of 35 lakh liters sold per day.

“The company has been experiencing inflationary pressure on overall input costs, which have climbed multifold in the last year, accompanied by milk production difficulty owing to the ongoing pandemic,” according to the statement.
