Development of the Chinese dairy industry

The Chinese government encourages the consumption of dairy products to improve the nutrition and immune defenses of the population, while seeking to reduce the country’s dependence on imports. Wishing to turn the page on the melamine infant milk scandal, which affected 300,000 babies in 2008, milk production is picking up again in the country, after ten years of stagnation. The major industrial groups (Mengniu, Yili, Youran or Modern Dairy) do not export and concentrate on the domestic market, which is growing by 4 to 5% per year. They develop very large farms and rely heavily on innovation, investing four times more than all their competitors in the world.
