9 December 2020: All up

Both the whey and skim markets are posted as up €10 this week. Whilst skim is freely offered, that market seems roughly in balance, but whey is a different story, as the reported rise represents small volume that has actually traded. The real whey market is probably up €30 or so, in order to tempt out genuine volume, and the potential is there to rise further. Even Central America is now in on the act, and Asian demand hasn’t cooled any.
