Udupi: Dakshina Kannada Milk Union Limited (DKMUL) President Raviraj Hegde said the DKMUL is mulling over fixing minimum price for milk on the model of Gujarat. He was speaking at a consultation meeting with Taluk Milk Producers Cooperative societies presidents and secretaries.
"DKMUL procures 84 lakh litre milk and in this, 40 lakh litre milk is converted to milk powder. If milk fare is fixed on the model of Gujarat, then the incentives can be paid on the basis of profit posted by the milk union. In case, the milk union incurs any loss, then the incentives can be reduced, I want cooperative society members to support me in this regard," he said
The DKMUL has posted Rs 4.83 crore profit last year with a business turnover of Rs 800 crore.
It was started in 1986. By 1996, the union was procuring 50,000 litre milk per day. Now, the union procures 4.82 lakh litre milk per day.
