Slowdown in growth for EU milk deliveries

Published 4 March 15

Growth in EU milk deliveries slowed towards the end of last year, with December deliveries sitting 1.3% higher than in 2013. This is likely to be the result of lower farmgate milk prices, combined with countries threatened by superlevy reining in production. Growth is predicted to continue with the disappearance of quotas at the end of March, but is likely to be partly hampered by expected weak farmgate prices in the short term.
