Manufacture of dairy products reaches 11 year high

Published 7 April 15

Record levels of milk production resulted in a 13% rise in the volume of milk used to manufacture dairy products in 2014. A total of 7,018 million litres of milk were used for manufacturing purposes in 2014, the highest volume seen since 2003. These levels meant that UK dairy farmers have been more exposed to the volatility of the global dairy commodity markets than during the past 10 years.
