Koreans have used a little more milk in 2012, 34 against 33 liters in 2011. 80% of collection in Korea is geared towards the manufacture of liquid packaged milk. Korean imports of dairy products fell by 17% in 2012.

Milk production in Korea

The dairy industry is struggling to recover from the FMD outbreak that hit South Korea between November 2010 and March 2011. At that time 34,000 dairy cows were culled from infected herds, amputating 8% of the national herd lactating cows that had fallen to 191 000 head.

This epidemic has accelerated the already rapid restructuring that has lost 25% its farms in five years. They were more than 6,000 end of 2012, with an average of 41 cows.

By 2012, the herd has returned 4% of its workforce, to 420 000 head, and the number of lactating dairy cows have increased by almost 10% 209 000 head.

Production would have increased by 11% compared to the very low level (1.88 million tonnes) in 2011 to 2.11 million tonnes from Korean data.

The milk market in Korea

Koreans have used a little more milk in 2012, 34 against 33 liters in 2011, but the level of consumption is lower than that experienced some years ago, 35 liters in 2009 and more than 38 liters in 2003.

This decline in consumption milk can be partly blamed on the decline of the young generations, large consumers of these products, in proportion to the total population. The number of people aged under 19 have decreased by 17% in 10 years in Korea.

According to a survey by the observation center of Korean agriculture in January 2013, the main selection criteria for consumers dairy products are fresh (31%), brand (23%) and price (21%).

Despite quotas unchanged, Korean imports of dairy products fell by 17%. They represent only 2% of agricultural and food imports from Korea.

In 2011, the Korean government had significantly increased the import of dairy products exempt from customs duties quotas to fill the fall of production and limit inflationary movements in the distribution , which caused a surge in imports of cheese and milk powder.
