Summit Discusses Quota Removal and Impact on Production

07 November 2012

EU- Although Quota Removal is forecast to have little impact globally it is forecast to restrict growth in EU dairying.

As milk output in most EU member states is below quota the impact of the removal of the quota system on international markets is expected to be low. This is the view of Joop Kleibeuker of the European Dairy Association.

The few that are at their quota ceiling are those more tuned into the export market. Total EU output is projected to grow by only 1 per cent per year between 2015 and 2020.
