sudha milk price increase dairynews7x7

Consumers in Bihar will have to pay more for Sudha milk from April 24 as the Bihar State Milk Cooperative Federation Limited (Comfed) has decided to hike milk prices. The new rates, which have already been implemented, will affect all types of milk and will see an increase of Rs 2 to Rs 3 per litre.

Bihar State Milk Cooperative Federation Limited (Comfed), which sells milk and dairy products under the Sudha brand, argued that milk producers needed to be paid more and thus decided to hike milk prices.

Notably, this is the second time in the last six months that the price of Sudha milk has been increased in Bihar, with Comfed having previously raised prices in October 2022.


The milk price has been increased as there is a hike in retailers’ margin from Rs 1.75 per litre to Rs 1.95 per litre, said Comfed officials.

After the latest revision, the price of Sudha full cream milk will now be Rs 62 instead of Rs 59 while toned milk will cost Rs 49 per litre. Sudha cow milk will now be available at Rs 52 per litre.

Over the last few years, the price of Sudha milk has been on a continuous upward trend, leaving consumers to bear the brunt of expensive milk.

Comfed had last increased milk prices on October 10, 2022.
