Study on Milk Production Costs in Belgium

On 4 March 2015 in Brussels, the MIG and the EMB presented the results of the scientific study on the costs of milk production in Belgium.

The study follows similar ones recognised by European bodies carried out in Germany, France and the Netherlands. These studies use the same sources (FADN and institutes of national statistics) and the same calculation methods.

Similar to the studies in the other countries the Belgian figures clearly show the gap between the costs of production and the prices paid to farmers for their product.

The study was carried out by the German office BAL (Büro für Agrarsoziologie und Landwirtschaft).
