IDF World Dairy Situation 2010

09 November 2010

NEW ZEALAND - The International Dairy Federation is aware that consumer needs are changing and the dairy sector must adjust to such demands quickly. Consequently, it has revamped its flagship publication: the IDF World Dairy Situation 2010 report.

The world dairy market is constantly growing and evolving. Every year, global production is increasing and fulfilling new needs and requirements in regions and continents around the world.

The IDF World Dairy Situation 2010 has incorporated several changes designed to make it more usable and relevant to decision-makers and dairysector stakeholders concerned with continuously changing global dairy market conditions. It is also easier to use and reference thanks to its new innovative layout.

This updated edition is the result of close collaboration between experts and key organisations around the globe and within the IDF. Its contents, including statistics on production, consumption and trade in all regions of the world, as well as specific observations from IDF member countries, will help the reader to better understand and deal with the many challenges and opportunities facing the global dairy market. Many of these are driven by population and income growth, consumer health concerns and changing dietary patterns worldwide.

Commenting on the World Dairy Situation 2010 report, Bob Yonkers, Chair of the IDF Standing Committee on Dairy Policies and Economics said: “Despite ups and downs, world trade in dairy products continues to increase, rising seven per cent in 2009 compared to the previous year. That trend appeared to be continuing in the first half of 2010. New market exchange activity, reported in the World Dairy Market Forum section of this report, is a reflection of this trend and an expectation that it will continue. The IDF World Dairy Situation 2010 brings strategic insights into this dynamic and growing world dairy market for use by producers of farm milk, dairy product manufacturers, and ultimately the endusers of those products around the globe.”

The World Dairy Situation 2010 is considered an essential and very useful resource by the global dairy community and is presented at the annual IDF World Dairy Summit.
