Tridge summary

In January, GB milk deliveries saw a decrease of 0.7% from the previous year, a fall of 7.6 million litres. This decline was less significant than the 3% declines witnessed in the Autumn. A 1.7% decrease was also observed in global milk deliveries across selected regions, with Australia being the only exception. The decrease in EU total milk deliveries was primarily due to production declines in France, Germany, and Ireland. Despite these declines, a modest growth of 0.25% is expected in global milk production by 2024. Meanwhile, the UK wholesale markets experienced some uncertainty in January, with mild cheddar and butter recording minor price gains.
