Recap: the UK dairy market in global context

Published 21 July 15

The state of the UK dairy market is the combined result of events happening both in our own market and across the globe. Increased production across the main exporting countries is leading to an excess of dairy products on the world market, driving prices down. On top of this, the drop in demand from China, Russia and Brazil has resulted in a shrinking global market, making it harder to find markets for our products. The weaker Euro – resulting from the economic uncertainty within the Eurozone – is also having a negative effect as it makes British products relatively more expensive than its competitors on international markets.
