Domestic milk production in South Korea is forecast to decrease to 2 million tons in 2023, according to a recent USDA GAIN report

2022 milk production is projected to drop to 2.01 million tons after reaching 2.34 million tons in 2021. 

Milk production is expected to show a decreasing trend due to the decreasing number of dairy farms and falling demand for milk. Cheese consumption, in contrast, is gradually increasing. 

However, imports in 2022 may experience an unusual drop due to the weakening Won exchange rate, particularly against the US dollar.
