China and Japan Release Annual Dairy Forecasts

The U.S. Foreign Ag Service says China will likely see some dairy import increases in 2022 while Japan will not.


In its annual report, the FAS office says China’s milk production is expected to increase three percent in 2022.  Imports of skim milk powder, cheese, and butter are expected to increase with growing demand.  Whey imports and related products are likely to decline with forecasted lower infant birth rates and a weakening animal feed sector.


The FAS says Japan’s milk production is likely to increase by one percent but demand in the foodservice sector remains weak for restaurants, hotels, and institutions.  Imports of butter and nonfat dry milk are expected to decline or stay flat because of COIVD restrictions.
