Milk prices in State to go up by Rs 4 a litretext_fields
Thiruvananthapuram: After a gap of two and a half years, milk prices in the State will go up by Rs 4 a litre, state owned Kerala Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation's (Milma) Chairman said.
The prices will become effective from Saturday when a litre of milk will cost Rs 39.
"The last time the price of milk was raised was in July 2014 and after that, there has been an allround cost escalation on all fronts and hence there is no other way than to increase the price," said Kurup.
The daily procurement of milk by Milma in the state through its 2,859 societies in the last fiscal touched 10.77 lakh litres a day, while the sales crossed 12.66 lakh litres. Milma procures the difference from neighbouring states.
