OMFED increased the price of its packaged milk by Rs 4 per litre

Bhubaneswar: 26/9/19:Odisha State Cooperative Milk Producers’ Federation Limited (OMFED) has increased the price of its packaged milk by Rs 4 per litre in the state.

The new rates will be effective from September 27.

While the price of ‘Premium’ and ‘Gold Premium’ milk variants were earlier Rs 40 per litre, it has been increased to Rs 44. The rate of ‘Toned’ milk variant increased to Rs 38 per litre from Rs 34.

OMFED, which has majority stakes in the state’s milk market, said that profits generated from the higher margin would go directly to the farmers.

The rate of OMFED milk had remained unchanged since December, 2014.

However, the increase in milk prices has not gone down well with consumers as they opposed the move of OMFED.

On the other hand, dairy farmers and others associated with the business have welcomed state government’s decision.
