Bengaluru, Jan 5: The Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) has revived their popular brand Nandini milk price by Rs 4 per litre and also that of all products made from milk, with an announcement made by the state government. The new price came into effect from today (Tuesday), Jan 5.
A litre of toned milk (blue packet) will now cost Rs 34 as against Rs 30. Accordingly, 500 ml packet will cost Rs 17 as against the earlier price of Rs 15. Nandini's Homogenised cow milk is priced at Rs 19 for 515 ml as against Rs 17, from today onwards now.
However, the curd price will remain same for 200 gram quantity will continue to be sold at old price of Rs 10 but it will cost Rs 19 for 415 grams.
Ravi Kumar Kakade, the Director of Marketing exclusively told OneIndia that, "Earlier what we used to pay to farmers in return of milk was not enough and they complained to a TV media that the current situation to continue milk supply is disappointing for them and they might move away from this profession, so we have to take care of them as they are the center of this profession and if they are happy, everyone would be happy."
While comparing the milk rate of other metropolitan cities, he said "Most of the metro citties have a difference of Rs 8 and Rs 9. Delhi, Mumbai and other cities were selling milk at Rs 38 and Rs 39, so how do you justify that."
"All these metro cities are in India, so if all city people can afford to buy then why not Bengaluru which is also an IT hub and in that way Karnataka is not a poor state and consumers can afford to buy", he concluded.
