27 May 2021: Market unchanged, but firm

Whilst sweet whey sits tight for a week, skim is still on the march north, and there are a few morsels of market intel.


Whilst whey still isn’t freely offered, some of the derivatives are coming out of the woodwork, which is usually a sign of a change of market direction. Acid whey and whey permeate are now finding their way onto the market but lactose, the new darling of Chinese import demand, is still tight.


Skim milk posts another €10 higher for edible grade and is ostensibly unchanged for feed, but the market is even tighter on supply after a 15,000 tonne parcel was snapped up for top dollar by Algeria.


Sterling has seemingly recovered from Brexit squabbles, with Cummings’ mudslinging at the weasels in Toad Hall having no palpable effect on exchange rates.


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