Welcome to this week's newsletter Editorial: Keeping Up With The Markets

New Zealand's Synlait Milk has had to look to China for capital investment in the company.

The group is looking to build a second large scale milk powder processing production plant capable of producing high specification formulated milk powders.

Bright Dairy and Food Co Limited has agreed to invest NZ$82 million to create a partnership to drive Synlait's value-added export strategy.

Canada's corn harvest is expected to be down due to the wet weather.

With this in mind, it will be relying on imports from the US to relieve the situation. However, this may have a negative effect on prices.

Significant increase of ageing, urban and middle class populations impact consumer needs and behaviour, according to latest Tetra Pak Dairy Index.

Ageing populations, urbanisation and an emerging global middle class are driving demand for new types of liquid dairy products (LDP) in both developed and developing countries, according to the report.
