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 ( 2010/index_en.htm).
