KARACHI: Dairy farmers have announced to increase milk prices by RS20 per litre, in Karachi.
“The inflation has lead us to increase the milk prices”, said President Dairy and Cattle Farmers Association, Shakir Umar Gujjar.
He further added, “the milk prices are being increased due to hike in the diesel price and production expenses.”
Shakir Umar Gujjar revealed that 95 per cent of milk being supplied in Karachi is pure, only five per cent of the dairy farmers are involved in the supply of counterfeit milk.
Earlier, in February, Sindh’s bureau of supply and prices wrote a letter to all the divisional commissioners across the province and instructed them to take actions against abrupt price hike in fresh milk prices after dairy farmers announced an overnight increase of Rs20 in fresh milk/litre prices.
