Cheese

Cheese prices are very high. Bids are above 4 EUR/kg, with collection at the end of the year. The new offers are at 4.20-4.30 EUR/kg.Prices for Q1 are going up and manufacturers are offering smaller and smaller quantities. We get a lot of inquiries from export directions. 

Cagliata is above 4.20 EUR/kg.  

There is no cheese for the shredding. Suppliers postpone deliveries because they have no availability.

 

Fats 

The prices of fresh butter do not match the prices of cream and are extremely high. There is a lot of frozen butter on the market with prices of 5200-5300 EUR/MT.

There is also a shortage of whey butter on the market. Small amounts of AMF are available and therefore prices are very high.

 

Liquids

In some countries, the milk collection has increased slightly.  Cream is still high - it was even over 7 EUR in some parts of Europe. However, by the end of the week things had calmed down.

SMC is above 2900 EUR/MT. This is probably due to low availability. Raw milk prices were high at the start of the week, but things were calmer at the end of the week. The demand for dairy liquids in some parts of Europe was very high.
