Last year during Diwali it sold well at Rs 85 crore. This year, along with the existing 275 milk and sweet products, 9 new sweets have been introduced for Diwali. The sales target for this year’s Diwali is Rs 250 crore. People belonging to the government sector should buy Aa’s sweets.
Aa’s sweets are pure with pure ghee as milk is milked and without any kind of adulterants. It has been brought to the attention of the Chief Minister regarding raising the procurement price of milk. The Chief Minister will take a decision on that. Products currently introduced in Aawin can be used for 20 to 25 days. These sweets will be exported to foreign countries including Singapore and Malaysia for Diwali,” said the minister.
Responding to the increase in the price of sweets, he said, “All the sweets are sold at a 20% discount compared to the private selling companies. The prices of the products have been increased less than the private companies.
The central government is imposing GST. The central government is directly increasing the GST by 5 percent. Implicitly raises the percentage of 20%. That is why we also have to raise the price. A loss of Rs 225 crore per year is due to reduction in milk price. The minister said, “Rs. 85 lakhs is lost every day in the air.”
