Anand: Prices of Amul milk, marketed by
Gujarat Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) in Gujarat, has been
increased by Rs 2 per litre in the state following increase in
prices of petrol, diesel and gas.
"We would be increasing the milk prices by Rs 2 per litre
in Gujarat from tomorrow," in-charge Managing Director of
GCMMF, R S Sodhi said.
"The prices of Amul Gold and Shakti will increase by Rs 2
per litre while Amul Tazaa and Slim and trim, two low-fat
varieties of milk, will be hiked by Re 1 per litre, in
Gujarat," he said.
He attributed the hike in milk prices to increasing cost
of fuel like petrol, diesel and gas.
With this hike, one litre Amul Gold and Shakti will now
cost Rs 30 and Rs 28 per litre respectively while Amul Tazaa
will cost Rs 24 per litre.
This is the second hike in milk prices in 2010.
