2.5 TL at the producer, 8 TL at the market! They came out again after the hikes
Milk purchased from cattle breeders for 2 lira and 55 kurus is sold in markets for 7-8 lira. Manufacturers emphasize that intermediaries profit from this situation.
Milk collected from animals that producers feed under harsh conditions are purchased for 2 lira and 55 kuruş. Processed with different varieties in factories, these milks find buyers between 7-8 lira in the markets.
Stating that the price difference between the first milk obtained from animals and the ones processed afterwards is high, the producers emphasize that the middlemen profited from this situation.
"WE THINK THAT THEY WILL TAKE THE RENTS OUT OF MILK"
Dairy producer Abdullah Turkmen stated that the markets make sales by adding their own raise rates, and said that there is a difference in both price and nutritional value between the milk purchased from the producer. Expressing that producers suffer from milk sales, Türkmen said, “Milk is bought from us for 2 lira and 15 kurus. It has a support of 40 kuruş.
2 markets' tags have been examined! The price difference shocked
This is equivalent to 2 lira 55 kuruş. If we consider it as supply and demand, I am a producer and there is no supply. We do not know who is the demand for. I think that the prices reaching these numbers are due to the markets putting their own hikes.
We think that they will wean the rents in the Corona virus process. If we consider processing milk, I think a maximum of 1 lira should be added. Let there be a travel cost of 1 lira, the most sold figure should be 5 and a half lira. It is very strange that it reached 8 liras.
Each of the cows I have is eating 8 kilos of feed. Considering that the price of a sack of feed is 120 lira, we cannot deduce the cost of 1 kilogram of feed.
In this period where intermediaries make more money and producers lose more money, I say it is a pity for the producer.
We also have friends who visit the neighborhoods and sell milk. The most expensive milk sold by them reaches 5 lira. It is sold directly from the manufacturer.
When we look at it, the fat content of the milk taken from me is very different from the fat content of the milk processed there. While the rate in our country reaches 60 percent, we see that the fat content in milk purchased from the markets is between 5-15 percent.
