Long-term Analyses of Milk and Dairy Markets
How do the milk markets develop? What influence do political and economic factors have on the supply and the demand of milk and dairy products? What are the driving factors in domestic and international trade in dairy products?
As one of the last agricultural markets the EU milk market will be liberalized gradually. The milk quota will be abolished in April 2015. In addition, the world market becomes more and more important in terms of domestic price formation. Therefore, the interaction between producers, processors, retailers and consumers is becoming more complex. In order to assess current market outcomes, we need to better understand interrelationships and effects of different factors and drivers to develop possible options for a detailed advice to policy makers.
Producers, Processing industries, Consumers, policy makers, economic associations.
Continuous market monitoring and collecting data is the basis of our analyzes and assessments. We build our work on long time series; we identify significant market drivers and derive possible trends.
