The Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) on Tuesday announced a hike in milk prices with effect from Wednesday (June 26). However, it also said it would be enhancing the quantity of milk in its half and one litre packets by 50 ml.

‘Only price of extra milk being collected’ 

Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah said that compared to last year, milk production in the state has increased by 15% this time. 

“In previous years, the daily average production of 90 lakh litres by this time has increased to an average of 99 lakh litres. Thus, the extra milk produced should be purchased from the farmers."

Terming good intention as the cause of price hike, the CM said, "…with the good intention of not refusing to get milk from them for any reason, adding an extra 50 ml of milk to a one-litre milk packet, the price of this extra milk is only 2 being collected from the consumers. There will be no increase in the price of milk."
