Amul has asked people to refrain from panic buying of milk and dairy products amid the coronavirus scare as there is no shortage of either.

Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd., which markets dairy stuff under Amul brand, is doing record procurement of milk in Gujarat and other parts of the country, Managing Director RS Sodhi said.

Supply has been increased already by 15-20 percent and it can be further enhanced.  "There is no need for panic buying. You will get milk and other dairy products every day," Sodhi said in his video message posted on Twitter.

Milk is essential commodity, he said, adding there is no restriction on people involved in procurement, processing and distribution of milk. There is sufficient stock to meet the demand.

On Friday, leading milk supplier Mother Dairy too assured people about smooth supply as well as proper hygiene in its entire supply chain.
