The price of fresh milk was raised by Rs 2 per litre in all markets nationwide as of June 3, 2024, by the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which sells milk and milk products under the Amul brand.

Amul Taaza and Gold will now cost Rs 2 more per litre, Amul Buffalo Milk will cost Rs 3 more per litre, and the remaining brands will cost Rs 1 more per litre. The increase is being ascribed by the federation to rising input prices. Amul buffalo milk would now cost Rs 73 per litre and cow milk Rs 58 per litre after the change.

"The rise in the overall cost of operations and milk production is the reason for this price hike. In addition, our member unions have raised farmer prices for milk procurement by around 6-8% over the past year," the GCMMF, the nation's biggest dairy producer, stated in a statement.

The GCMMF claims that Amul gives milk farmers around 80 paise for every rupee that customers pay. "The price revision will support our milk producers in maintaining fair milk prices and motivate them to aim for increased milk production."

With the most recent increase, the Amul Gold half-litre pouch will now retail for Rs 34 instead of Rs 33, and the one-litre pouch will now retail for Rs 68 instead of Rs 66.
