In terms of milk production, Brazil is ranked sixth among other nations worldwide with the production of approximately 27.9 million litres of milk in the country in 2009. The country is developing ways and means for developing and increasing the quantity of exports and also the domestic production capacity. Milk constitutes a major segment of the agri-business and offers employment opportunities to almost 3.6 million individuals. Most of the milk production is concentrated in the Southeast and Southern region. The two regions constitute roughly 65%-70% of the entire milk production in the country. Small farms contribute to nearly 10 litres of milk production in a day whereas the large farms accounts for nearly 60,000 litres of milk production. Brazil has doubled its milk production in just 15 years. The cow milk production during the historical period from 2007-2009 has increased at a CAGR of 2.3%. The production increased from 26,750 thousand tonnes in 2007 to 27,968 thousand tonnes in 2009.
Manufacturing use for dairy products has increased over the period of time as are the number of dairy products. Milk is used in producing a number of dairy products such as butter, milk, cheese, skim powder, yogurt and others. In 2009, 17,893 thousand tonnes of milk was used for manufacturing purposes.
Brazilian dairy products include butter, cheese, skim powder, whole milk powder, milk drinks and fermented products, cream, condensed milk and whey powder. In 2007, the market for dairy products stood at 1,315 thousand tonnes. The market registered a growth of 10.1% in 2008 and then a decline of -9.6% in 2009, because of the economic depression. However, the market is expected to recover from the depression and bounce back again in the forecasted period.
The production of cheese in Brazil has primarily inclined due to higher demand for several types of cheese from the fast food industry. There is an intense competition within the cheese sector, characterized by the high level of disintegration and bulk sales of the low margin products such as mozzarella and plate cheese (semi-hard cheese). The cheese industry in Brazil registered a positive CAGR of 2.9% during the period from 2007-2009. The production of cheese increased from 580 thousand tonnes in 2007 to 630 thousand tonnes in 2008, registering a promising growth of 8.6%. However, the year 2009 registered a decrease in the growth rate. This sector is expected to showcase a strong growth till 2015.
Whole milk powder consumption has remained strong over the last decade. The growth in consumption has far outstripped the production of whole milk powder domestically. Therefore, Brazil is one of the heavy importers of whole milk powder from Argentina and Uruguay. The government is endeavoring to reduce the alarming rise in the import level. It is expected that demand and supply gap will widen despite the government measures largely due to two major factors affecting the production and imports, 1) currency volatility 2) lower fluid milk production and availability for the manufacturing use.
