As per new reports, it is stated that Amul has hiked its prices for the different milk varieties retailed by ₹2 per litre across India, as of effect on June 3, 2024.

The price hike, which happened initially in February of 2023, further hiked the prices this month on all the varieties of milk made available to consumers.

While the standard buffalo milk stands at a revised price of ₹36 for half a litre, Amul Gold is priced at ₹33 for the same quantity. Meanwhile, Amul Shakti is being retailed at ₹30 for half a litre and Amul Taaza is currently priced at ₹28. Additionally, the skimmed milk product – Amul Slim n Trim – currently costs ₹25 for half a litre. The current increase in prices of the dairy produced by the brand will impact a 3-4% increase in MRP, which the company states, is much lower than the average inflation.
