Just looking at Dairy exports for last year. A staggering 154% increase (by value) in exports going to Venezuela. This puts Venezuela as our second top export destination for Dairy! Who would have thought. Exports to Cuba also increased by 139% but off a smaller base leaving it ranked 21. Increase in total exports from $7,466 million to $9,836 million in last year. Interesting to know how much of that is due to value fluctuations and how much is volume.
|2007 Rank||Country||% of Exports of Dairy (Year ending June 08)|
|1||United States of America||8.34%|
|4||China, People’s Republic of||4.47%|
Interesting to note that dairy exports are earning almost double that of meat exports.
