Thiruvananthapuram: Milma Chairman K S Mani on Friday said that there has been no move from Milma’s side to increase the price of milk.
Milk costs Rs 3 lesser in Kerala than in Tamil Nadu. We plan to introduce various schemes to reduce the cost of production. Currently, the milk production in the Malabar region goes up to 8 lakh litres as there was a rise in the number of farmers by 37 per cent.
He informed that the Tetra Milk Plant in the Malabar region and the Icecream plant in Thiruvananthapuram have received grants. A total of 15.50 lakh litres of milk is being procured from three regions at present. Out of this, 14.25 lakh litres of milk is being sold.
