     Skim Milk Powder - South America

     Report 37 - Released on September 12, 2019

     During the past two weeks, the skim milk powder (SMP) market in the Southern Cone region has
     been unstable, reflected on mixed export prices. The trading activity has been light to
     moderate. With more condensed skim intakes in the region, SMP drying schedules are more
     frequent in several balancing facilities, while inventories vary from plant to plant. In
     general, the demand for SMP inside and outside the Mercosur bloc ranges from sluggish to
     fair.
