    Why is local milk powder as expensive as imported milk powder when there are no freight charges, import duties etc. Appoint a commitee to review all processes within MILCO and make it cost effective and efficient.

    Why do we need government and idling ministers if the price of goods can be increased as when the vendor supplier feels.

    From now on are the local cows being fed with dollar notes or with the local feed as hither to for the price increase? Feed those responsible for the new upward revision with the cows" droppings. It would ease their conscience.

    Fine. Milco provides a genuine Milk Powder product. No harm in increasing the price. They have an opportunity to invest to increase productivity. Need to kick out the Branded artificial Milk Powder from the Market.

    It appears that Milco also imports milk for its production.
