WMP Production and prices

Whole Milk Powder ("WMP") is a pasteurised product resulting from the removal of water from milk. Its fat content ranges between 26% and 42%.
Whole Milk Powder (WMP) may be used as a food ingredient in bakery, confectionery, dairy products, sports and nutrition foods, infant formulas and other consumer products.

To note that the WMP production volumes have progressively developed: when production decreases in the EU-28, it seems to grow in Oceania and more clearly in Argentina.
