Ukrainian producers need to switch from the production of stock dairy products to deep processing products. How dry serum, lactoferrin, is demoralized.
This was stated by the chairman of the board of directors of the Union of Dairy Enterprises of Ukraine Vadym Chaharovskyi during the 10th All-Ukrainian Conference "Dairy Business - 2017".
According to him, being a raw material appendage on the international market is a way to nowhere. You need to look for value added products.
"The demineralaized whey now costs $ 2500 / ton, and the usual whey, which is now produced by our enterprises, is 600-800 $ / ton. Today, no enterprise in Ukraine produces instant milk powder, which is $ 400-500 from the usual exchange price. In addition, this is actually a means that the business is simply losing, " says Vadym Chaharovskyi.
