Support for Polish milk market request

During the course of the last Council meeting on Agriculture held in Luxembourg, the Polish and Lithuanian delegations briefed the ministers about market conditions for milk and milk products. Many member states supported the request to the European Commission  (EC) for market measures to respond to the decreasing prices in the milk and dairy market. The EC  indicated that it was aware of the situation and was closely following the evolution of the milk market, and said it would come back on this issue at the next Council meeting in July. It declared itself ready to activate appropriate measures apart from measures of private storage already in place when it considered that there was a need.
Poland reiterated its request made in April, indicating that the situation on the milk and dairy market continues to deteriorate dramatically : prices for butter, skimmed milk powder and milk have been continuously decreasing since the beginning of the year to reach now the "borderline of profitability".
