This bulletin includes papers presented at the Conference Major Changes in the International Dairy Trade organized by Commission C at IDF's Annual Sessions in Reykjavik, Iceland, in August 1997.
The new international trade regime for dairy products in general is discussed, but also with respect to the WTO and NAFTA in particular. The regional developments are described for North America, Western and Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa, and South East Asia and the Far East. The specific market trends are highlighted by the developments in the global consumption of dairy products, in the cheese market and the expanding ingredients market in the USA.
Finally, the strength of the dairy sector is related to the strength of the European retail chains.
