Dry Whey - Northeast

     Dry Whey - Eastern U.S.

     Report 24 - Released on June 14, 2018

     Dry whey spot sales are currently difficult to source as manufacturers´┐Ż supplies are
     limited. The Northeast price series increased on both sides of the range. When available,
     buyers are purchasing spot loads at higher prices. Dry whey production is fairly steady as
     milk volumes are plentiful in the Northeast for active cheese processing. Inventories are
     tight in warehouses and some manufacturers do not have available supplies for contracts.
     However, a few are able to obtain extra loads from other regional inventories to supply
     contract needs. The demand continues to be strong and many market participants are willing
     to purchase dry whey for higher prices on the spot market. The market tone is unchanged, yet
     some reports mention the market may appear to be approaching its climax.
