Price Increase in Dairy Inputs

Post by khandairies on Fri Sep 18, 2009 2:30 pm

Dear Readers,
Here I have tried to figure out the real problems faced by the Dairy Industry in Pakistan.The Prices of the Animals and the “Inputs” used to “manufacture” milk has increased by more than 150%.The milk was sold in year 2000 around Rs 20/kg and with the Increase with more than 150 % in year,the milk price should be around Rs 50/kg !But its price has not kept pace with the prices of other inputs used in Dairy that’s why the Dairy is on decline in Pakistan now.
In the same way,the daily food items in a house have increased in price by more then 100 %.While Fresh Milk again has lost the pace and the average increase is only around 10%.
