A source from Goa Dairy has revealed that though a formal decision has not been taken, the administrative committee is seriously mulling over hiking the rates by Rs 1.5 per litre of milk supplied by a farmer to the dairy. If the milk rate is hiked by Rs 1.5 per litre, then the dairy will have to shoulder the burden of Rs 1 lakh daily.

However, the source TOI ruled out the possibility of a hike in the selling price of milk.

Last year, from August 2019, the dairy had increased the procurement rates of cow milk by Rs 2 a litre and buffalo milk by Rs 7 a litre from July 2019

Presently, the farmers get Rs 28.14 for milk with 3.5% fat and 8.5% SNF (solids not fat), Rs 29.57 for milk with 4% fat and 8.5% SNF, Rs 31 for milk with 4.5% fat and 8.5% SNF, Rs 32.44 for milk with 5% fat and 8.5% SNF, and Rs 33.51 for milk with 5% fat and 9% SNF.

The source told TOI that the cooperative union procures around 60,000 litres of cow milk per day from local farmers and a tanker of around 13,000 litres of high fat milk on every alternative day from Karnataka.

Patancheru police on Tuesday conducted searches on a milk factory in Pashamailaram industrial estate on the city outskirts and seized adulterated dairy products, particularly curd and cheese (paneer).
