The Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which sells its dairy products under the well-known brand name “Amul,” raised the price of milk by Rs 2 per litre across the state on Saturday.
Amul milk prices have increased starting on Saturday in Gujarat’s Saurashtra, Ahmedabad, and Gandhinagar markets, according to GCMMF sources.
According to sources, “Amul Gold” would now cost Rs 32 for 500 ml, “Amul Standard” Rs 29 for 500 ml, “Amul Taaza” Rs 26 for 500 ml, and “Amul T-Special” Rs 30 for 500 ml, among other items.
After the state’s December Assembly elections, which the Bharatiya Janata Party won with a record 156 out of 182 seats, this is the first price increase for Amul milk in the state.
In Gujarat, GCMMF last increased Amul milk prices in August of last year by Rs 2 per litre. GCMMF increased milk prices by Rs 2 per litre on February 3 of this year in all markets nationwide, except Gujarat.
Presently, the GCMMF member unions purchase milk from 36 lakh milk producers in 18,154 Gujarat villages on average every day, totalling 264 lakh litres.
