World Dairy Summit in Parma, Italy
This comprehensive report is considered an essential resource by the global dairy community. It investigates major developments, new trends, and the evolution of the demand for dairy products, as well as gathering statistics on production, consumption and trade in all regions of the world.
The IDF World Dairy Situation 2011 has built on the improvements made last year to make it even more usable and relevant to decision-makers and dairy-sector stakeholders concerned with the continuously changing global dairy market conditions.
This year’s report showed some very positive developments: “The economic recovery experienced in 2010 meant a boost to the worldwide demand for dairy products, resulting in major volume increases for most products traded around the globe”, explained Adriaan Krijger, editor of the publication.
Another important conclusion is the influence of developing markets on global dairy trade: “Consumption of food is growing most rapidly in developing markets, due to population and income growth. The dairy sector is benefiting significantly, and the growth in demand for dairy products continues to be one of the strongest of the major commodity groups.”
This updated edition is the result of close collaboration between experts and key organisations around the globe and within the IDF.
