The negative growth came to the end in the industry as a whole, meanwhile it achieved a positive growth.

The latest statistics show that from January to April this year, large-scale dairy enterprises of China produced 5,864,300 tonnes of dairy products, an increase of 2.67 per cent.

In April, dairy production reached 1,543,600 tonnes, an increase of 8.03 per cent year on year.

Due to the dual strikes of Melamine scandal last September and the global financial crisis, China's dairy industry has sunk into the lowest point by the end of 2008.

There were 15 provinces or autonomous regions in the negative growth of dairy production, with the five main producing areas in North China are all in negative growth.

The domestic market was in a sharp decline. Almost all enterprises were in a difficult position.

To tackle the situation, China has issued an array of laws, regulations and policies to strengthen quality supervision and stimulate the development of the industry.
