Czech retailers and milk producers attribute the price growth to rising demand for dairy products in the European Union and Asia, low milk production in Germany and France, and reduced supplies from Australia because of drought there.

Foreign customers are said to be particularly interested in powdered milk. Czech dairies find it more lucrative to produce and export powdered milk than sell fresh milk on the domestic market. Increased demand for dairy products is also being fuelled by high demand in China, say reports.
