EU-28: milk production and population

This page provides, in a given period of time, with the comparison between data related to the milk output in the EU27 and data referred to EU population.
The comprehensive figures hereafter keep into consideration the 3 phases that the EU has been going through, formerly composed of 15 national Countries, and later enlarged to 25, on May 1st 2004 and to 27 on January 1st 2007.

N.B.:
Some Countries' production exceeds needed domestic demand i.e. France, Germany and the Netherlands; therefore such Countries are in a position to offer for exports a wide range of dairy products.

Other Countries' production is insufficient for needed domestic demand, as in Italy; therefore such countries depend on imports.

Then, others Countries' milk production (i.e. Poland) is below deliveries that are milk volumes destined to the Dairy Processors
