25 November 2021: Levelling up?

Updated: Dec 16, 2021

There are finally some signs that the upward charge is starting to run out of steam. My take is that what started with a genuine shortage of skim milk powder back in September turned into unbridled greed and wilful withholding of material in both the skim and sweet whey markets. The shop window prices for both products showed €20 increases week-on-week, but out in the real world, suddenly physical supplies seem plentiful. Not that these are sunlit uplands, at least from the consumer’s point of view, but it looks unlikely we will see anything more favourable than a levelling off before a possible downward correction later in Q1.
