Usually, farmers who use to do a small business of milk with the help to the cows or buffalos which they have with them don’t look up for building their market; instead of which they sell their milk in bulk to big firms like Amul, Mother dairy, Vita, Paras, etc. even at a very cheap rate like Rs. 25/L or lower. This is the prime reason or epicenter from where the whole plan of contamination, adulteration, or synthetic milk is generated.
Here what happens in the situation, When a small farmer gets bonded with a firm like Amul, then, for instance,1 L of milk is costing him about Rs. 30-35/L, the same guy in the temptation of more money uses those chemicals or synthetics to make more concentrated milk because of which he gets success in lowering the price of Rs. 30-35/L to Rs. 15-20/L. Amul buys the milk at 30-35/L and sells us at their desired price.
