New Zealand: dairy sector

Nuova Zelanda The purpose of this report is two-fold:

  • on the one hand, it describes the products that the industry produces, including commodities and various derivatives
    (butter, concentrated butter, cheese, milk powder, whey powder, casein, etc.);

  • on the other hand, it shows the overall exports of processed products - due to surplus production in relation to the population.

Home to a major exports cooperative, the Fonterra Cooperative Group, New Zealand is able to trade its dairy products on the international market.
