Bengaluru: The Bangalore Milk Producers’ Union (BAMUL) has witnessed a decline in milk production by the day. In view of this, there is a fear that there will be a shortage of milk products like cheese, ghee, powder, paneer and others in the coming days.
In March last year, 15 lakh litres of milk was being supplied daily. But this year, it has come down to 3 lakh litres. If the situation continues like this, it is likely to come down 11 to 12 lakh litres. There is a possibility of a reduction in the number of litres.
Bengaluru has a daily demand of 12.5 lakh litres of milk, including milk and curd. But at present, 13 lakh litres of milk is being supplied. The remaining 50,000 litres of milk is being used to make cheese, ghee, milk powder and other milk products.
There is a total demand of 15 lakh litres of milk in Bengaluru. But BAMUL officials inform that they are not able to produce that much milk.
