As tensions between the Government of President Alberto Fernández and rural producers seem to be focused on the 30-day ban on meat exports, the Argentine Rural Confederations (CRA) issued a statement this weekend headed Does the milk producer not matter?
Deprived of customers such as supermarkets, restaurants, and schools due to the coronavirus outbreak and resulting lockdown, British farmers are throwing away thousands of liters of milk.
Uruguay's exports of dairy products between January and November were worth 636 million US dollars, which represents a 17% increase compared to the same period last year, the National Milk Institute (INALE) announced Monday.
Uruguay has the highest per capita consumption of milk in Latin America averaging between 225 and 230 liters. This compares favorably with Argentina’s 220 liters, Brazil’s 110 and Chile’s 100.
