India is one of the largest milk producing countries in the world. Because India is the country that consumes the most milk and dairy products in the world. But since mid-August, it appears that 1 in 3 families have reduced milk intake. Which is definitely eye-catching.
Milk is baby food, as well as milk and other dairy products such as cheese, curd, butter, ghee, buttermilk, etc. The reason is also clear.
Last March, the price of milk was increased by Rs 2 per 500 ml by various milk manufacturing companies of the country including Amul. Then again from August 17, the price of milk increased to 2 rupees. Within a year, the price of a packet of milk before March increased by Rs. 2 times to Rs. 4.
People are struggling to cope with the increase in the price of the same commodity. On top of that, many could not handle the shock of this increase in the price of milk. As a result, 1 out of every 3 people reduced their milk intake.
Some have turned to cheaper milk. Someone has reduced bringing milk home. Of course, not everyone has reduced. Estimates show that 68 percent of people have not budged from the amount of milk they used to get at home even after the price hike. — Written with help from news agencies
