EU share of global SMP market jumps in 2014

Published 27 May 15

Skimmed milk powder (SMP) produced within the EU accounted for just under a third of all global exports of SMP during 2014, up from 22% the previous year.

The EU was the only region out of the four major SMP exporters to increase volumes – up by almost 60% compared to the previous year, largely due to increased exports to Algeria. Export volumes from New Zealand fell by 7% whereas export volumes from both the USA and Australia were 2% lower than in 2013.
