It seems that production of casein becomes more favorable than processing into milk powder.
The prices of demand for these products though fell, but not as considerably as for SMP.
European traders value casein at USD 8500/t. It is quite good price if to consider that they value Ukrainian SMP at USD 2500/t.
Therefore it may happen that rates of decline of production will slow down. In July the production was reduced by 8% to 752t.
Two tens plants now work at casein market, but nearly a half of the volume is produced by five of them.
