26 August 2021: SE Asia reawakens


As predicted, returning holidaymakers found themselves short of September purchases and have piled into the market, which has seen both skim and whey rise €20 this week.


Sweet whey is still more easily sourced than skim, which remains considerably tighter for stocks, but one significant snippet of news that SE Asia, excluding China, has returned with heavy purchasing of sweet whey. This demand has been met by European traders with long books, but has certainly contributed to the jump in values.

BDC agri is the UK broker for Lacto Production milk and whey powder products.
