KMF proposes to hike milk price by Rs. 3 a litre

January 16, 2022

Bengaluru: In yet another shock to the common man, who is already reeling under soaring prices of essential commodities, the KMF (Karnataka Milk Federation) has sought to hike milk price by Rs. 3 a litre.

The general body of the KMF, headed by its Chairman and MLA Balachandra Jarkiholi, which met in Benglauru on Thursday, unanimously approved the proposal to hike the price of milk by Rs. 3 a litre.

Speaking to media persons after the meeting, Balachandra Jarkiholi, maintained that Nandini Milk, the flagship brand of KMF is the cheapest milk brand in the country.

Pointing out that the KMF is selling a litre of Nandini Milk at Rs. 37 a litre, he said that all Milk Producer Unions of the State have unanimously sought a revision in price, which has not been hiked for the past couple of years. Noting that the KMF will submit a fresh proposal to the Chief Minister in this regard, he said that the KMF is hopeful of getting approval for price hike.

The KMF Chairman further said that the Nandini Mega Food park at Belagavi is in full swing. The meeting also decided to market KMF’s flavoured milk products produced at Hassan pet bottle plant, he added.

    Last evening I bought a pack of Paneer from KMF’s authorized milk vendor and kept it in a fridge overnight and this morning we prepared Paeer Masala and consumed it along with palao rice. To our discomfort, the whole family had stomach cramps and loose motions within an hour’s time. I know the vendor is helpless as he too had stored it in a cooler when he handed me the pack and the pack had an expiry date until February. I want to ask, is this the way food is handled in KMF and its famed Nandini products are sold to people? I am afraid I will not ask for a refund as the product itself is not so expensive and it is already cooked, and even if I get my money back, who would take the responsibility for our worsened health and discomfort due to their famed Paneer?
