The FAO Dairy Price Index - May 2017
The FAO Dairy Price Index averaged 193 points in May, up 9.5 points (5.1 percent) from April and as much as 51 percent from May 2016. In spite of the latest increase, the index is still 30 percent below its peak reached in February 2014. Quotations of all the dairy products that compose the index rose in May. In the case of butter, firm domestic demand in Europe and North America provided support to prices, while ample intervention stocks in the EU limited the increase in skim milk powder prices.
