Tridge summary

In May, Ukrainian dairy exports saw a significant increase despite low global prices, driven by a rise in processing volumes and a decrease in domestic sales. The exports of spreads, casein, and dry whey increased notably year-over-year, while imports of dairy products, including butter, rennet cheese, and processed cheese, decreased. The import of cheese, which was expected to continue increasing, remained stable. Experts predict that exports will further increase in June, while imports will decrease. The price of milk and milk products in Europe, especially in Poland, is on the rise, impacting imports. Additionally, domestic producers are urged to consider pricing strategies as European cheese dominates the Ukrainian market. Despite an increase in dairy product prices, sales volumes have risen, and fresh dairy product producers are now operating profitably.
