  • Pininvest Analysis

Milk is one of the more attractive growth markets from a long-term perspective, in terms of per capita consumption

Because  co-operatives ensure a large part of the production, the top five players - France’s Danone DANOY/OTC) and Lactalis (private), Switzerland’s Nestle NSRGY/OTC), and China’s Mengniu Dairy CIADF/OTC) and Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial Group (600887:Shanghai) account for less than 20 percent of the retail market for dairy products worldwide

With co-operatives dominating in Northern Europe (Arla in Denmark, FrieslandCampina in the Netherlands), in India and in Australia (Fonterra FTRRF/OTC, investment opportunities are constrained, especially for Chinese milk companies seeking to diversify and to strengthen their industrial knowhow – next to Australian Burra Foods (Inner Mongolia Fuyuan Farming taking a 79% stake in 2016), listed companies on the New Zealand stock exchange have made noticeable and unusual runs in through March 2018 – A2Milk (NZX:ATM +380%) and Synlait (NZX:SML +130%)
