Situation On The Dairy Market

01 April 2010

EU - At the Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting earlier this week, the Council took note of the Commission's quarterly report on the dairy market.

The latest figures show that average producer milk prices in the EU have reached a level of around 28 cents per litre, which is close to the seasonal long-term average.

As a reaction to the crisis in the dairy sector, the Commission undertook in May 2009 to report every three months on the situation on the dairy market. The Commission also established a High Level Group discussing mid-term and long-term arrangements and is expected to table preliminary conclusions in May 2010.

In addition to the discussion within the High Level Group, the Commission organised a conference on "What future for milk?" in Brussels on 26 March 2010 in order to consult more widely (http://ec.europa.eu/agriculture/events/milk-conference- 2010/index_en.htm).
