Milk price to go up by Rs45 per liter this week, says Shakir Gujjar

Pertinent to note that earlier today, Dairy and Cattle Farmers Association (DCFA) president Shakir Umar Gujjar said that Oct 22 the dairy milk prices will go up by Rs40- to 45, while he spoke to ARY News morning show, lamenting that no coordinated efforts were made in the past 70 years to help dairy industry.

He said the real price the principal dairy product should be sold at is Rs155 per liter, noting in the first phase Sindh markets will see the hike which will later be implemented in Punjab next.

The DCFA president said if the government wanted the prices could be much lower but the fodder and essentials for our cattle are mostly exported leaving the market very inflated for local consumers.
