Global Dairy Paper 'Essential' Across the Sector

31 October 2013

GLOBAL – Understanding world supply and demand trends is essential for both the farmers, processors and governments, an International Dairy Federation (IDF) Spokesperson has said at the release of its annual world dairy paper.

The World Dairy Situation 2013 was released on Tuesday at the IDF World Dairy Summit in Japan.

All regions of the world are discussed in the paper, and the production costs, changing demand patterns and policy options laid out.

Using input from world experts, the paper conducts a detailed analysis of Japanese and South American dairy sectors.

Report editor, Dr Adriaan Krijger said: “Having a comprehensive understanding of global demand and supply trends, and the wide range of policy and economic factors that influence them, is essential for the both the industry and policy makers alike.

“The ‘World Dairy Situation’, produced annually by the IDF Standing Committee on Dairy Policies and Economics, is a major contribution toward that objective, as part of fulfilling the IDF’s mission to represent and support the dairy industry globally.”
