During his visit to Amul Dairy in September last year, Prime Minister Modi had claimed that he was ridiculed for calling camel’s milk nutritious several years ago, and that now camel’s milk was not only being used in making chocolates but was also fetching double the price for farmers when compared to cow’s milk.

Officials of Sarhad Dairy said that at present, cow milk fetches Rs 28-30 per litre for the milk producer, while camel’s milk fetches Rs 50-55 per litre in Gujarat.
