Global Dairy Trade Annual Report

We welcome you to download our 2020 Global Dairy Trade Annual Report, providing key trading statistics for the year.

Demand and supply were heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic during 2020, causing disruption for buyers and sellers on many fronts.  We were fortunate as an online service to be well-positioned to maintain Trading Events throughout the year, supporting our buyers and sellers to continue trading throughout these volatile times.  

GDT Events achieved an average clearance rate of 95% of offered quantity sold at year-end, resulting in a combined total of 678,076 metric tonnes. 

The twice-monthly auction attracted an average of 178 active bidders per Trading Event, with a total of 319 bidders participating at least once during 2020.  

Our Annual Report also includes a comprehensive range of GDT statistics, including: 

  • Quantity sold and prices achieved 
  • Supply and demand analysis 
  • Bidder concentration analysis 
  • Regional breakdowns
