The prices of imported milk powder will be increased once again from midnight today.
The Milk Powder Importers’ Association said the price of a 1kg packet of imported milk powder will be increased by Rs.150 and a 400g packet will be increased by Rs.60.
Accordingly the revised price of a 1kg packet of milk powder will be Rs.1,345 while the price of a 400g packet will increase to Rs.540.
Milk powder importers took steps to increase prices of milk powder in October as well.
Importers said they are unable to continue to provide milk powder at the current rates, as prices have increased once again in the world market.
