USDA - AMS: Skim Milk Powder - South America (2019-01-17)

USDA U.S. Department of Agriculture - January 17, 2019


     Skim Milk Powder - South America

     Report 3 - Released on January 17, 2019

     Globally, SMP spot prices surprised the dairy industry as prices increased significantly
     during the last two weeks.  An important factor that has contributed to the increase in SMP
     prices worldwide is the reduction of intervention stocks in the E.U. That said, during the
     past two weeks, SMP export prices in South America rose considerably, in line with
     international market trends. Meanwhile, since most of the time is being devoted to
     processing WMP, SMP production remains sporadic throughout the continent. In general, demand
     for SMP is steady, but supplies are limited, thus the market is in a bullish position at
     this point.
