Dairy farmers’ strike will not hit Aavin milk supply: Minister

With a section of dairy farmers threatening to go on strike from Friday demanding an increase in procurement prices, Minister for Dairy Development S.M. Nasar on Thursday said the Aavin milk supply would not be affected in any manner due to the strike.

Speaking to presspersons after holding meetings with various associations, he said Aavin was in the process of procuring enough milk to meet the demand. The Tamil Nadu Milk Producers Welfare Association’s M.G. Rajendran said the present three-tier cooperative system was in danger of collapsing if the procurement prices were not increased.

Private milk dairies were paying ₹10 more per litre than what Aavin was paying, he pointed out.
