Milk and dairy

The FAO Dairy Price Index - March 2015
The FAO Dairy Price Index averaged 184.9 points in March, up 3.0 points (1.7 percent) from its February value and the second consecutive monthly rise. The increases were particularly pronounced for whole milk powder (up 10.7 percent), followed by skimmed milk powder (up 7.0 percent) and butter (up 2.1 percent). Cheese quotations, however, declined by 3 percent. Limited export supplies in Oceania and Europe was the principal cause of the reversal of the falling world dairy price trend that prevailed between March 2014 and January 2015.
