INDONESIA - The Indonesian Association of Dairy Cattle Farmers (APSPI) has predicted that the sluggish trend in domestic fresh milk production will continue next year as more local producers are likely to resign from fierce competition with imported dairy products.
The association estimates that next year local fresh milk production will drop to 700,000 tons from 750,000 tons in 2016.
The figure makes up less than 20 per cent of national demand for fresh milk, which currently stands at 3.82 million tons.
“In 2020, we predict that the proportion will be between 12 per cent and 13 per cent,” APSPI chairman Agus Warsito said as quoted by Kontan.co.id on Friday.
