Traders buy the remains of technical acid casein at 5000-5200 USD/t. Prices are low, but importers’ considerations are clearc – this the realitity of the world dairy market. For example, the New Zealand Fonterra sells its edible casein at the same price.
As already mentioned, casein warehouses in Ukraine are quickly emptying. Last month, 460 tons of goods were exported outside the country. In December, exports will be two times smaller. As before, Poland buys the lion’s share of Ukrainian casein (82%), the rest is supplied to the Netherlands, Germany, France and the Czech Republic.
