The price of milk in Zimbabwe is expected to go up next month following an increase in the producer price, news reports said on Thursday. Dairibord Zimbabwe Limited (DZL), the country's major supplier and buyer of milk, has reportedly increased the price of milk by nearly 13 percent.

DZL, which has already increased the producer price of milk by 43 percent since the beginning of the year, said it now has to import milk powder and butter to meet local needs and exports to Botswana, Malawi, Zambia and Tanzania.
