Economies & Markets

The project’s purpose is to provide objective statistical and other information regarding the South African and international dairy industries, in compliance with the Competition Act. The information is especially needed to provide market signals to all interested parties.

In a deregulated market environment, it is critically important for the viability of the dairy industry that market signals are available to all interested parties, so as to ensure the effective working of the markets. Such market signals are also required for effective competition as envisaged by the Competition Act, and the optimal use of national resources. 

The project includes the publication of the following, which can be accessed here:
