Global Research & Data Services: The Growth Potential of the Russian Milk Market Remains High

LAHTI, FINLAND--(Marketwire - March 16, 2009) - The markets for milk have been growing in Russia in recent years. In particular, demand for long-life milk products (UHT milk and flavoured milk drinks) has been growing strongly. The dairy sector has benefited from the rise in purchasing power of Russian consumers and also from the development of the country's retail sector. The growth potential of the market remains high, with the per capita consumption of milk still being much lower in Russia than in Western European countries, and the country having a considerable population.

In 2008, the total Russian demand for milk was estimated at 1407 million euros (93% for drinking milk products and 7% for condensed/evaporated milk). The total demand is projected to be between 1279 and 1653 million euros in 2012.
