The district co-operative dairy has hiked the price of milk by Rs 1 per litre. Now, the federation will purchase milk at Rs 20 and sell it at Rs 33 per litre.
The decision was taken keeping in view the producers and the consumers, informed chairman of the dairy Haribhau Bagade in a press conference here on Saturday.
The inflow of milk has reduced and cost of milk production has also increased in recent time. Hence, the diary has taken the decision to increase the rate by Re 1 from October 1.
"We have withheld the decision to start the project of packed water bottle at present. The dairy is paying more attention on measures to maintain the quality of milk than other milk dairies," Bagade said.
Vice chairman Kachuru Dike Patil and others were present.
