Aavin on Thursday announced an increase in milk procurement prices by ₹3 a litre and as a result over 4.20 lakh farmers attached to 9,345 primary cooperative societies will benefit.

A litre of cow milk will be procured at a price of ₹35 and buffalo milk at ₹44. The last time the milk procurement prices were increased was in August 2019, said an official press release.

M.G. Rajendran, who represents a major dairy farmers’ association, said that this would bring relief to lakhs of farmers who depend on cattle rearing.

Price of full cream Aavin milk hiked by ₹14 per litre

Aavin has also increased the price of full cream milk (orange-coloured packs) from ₹48 to ₹60 to provide for the increase in procurement prices. Prices of other varieties remain the same.
