Milk sales up

MILK purchases during 2001 in Slovakia's dairy sector totalled 946.3 million litres, a 43.2 million litre increase year-on-year.

Despite the significant increase, the fulfilment of the plan lagged 0.5 percentage points behind the increased 950-million-liter national quota. However the quota was increased 20 million litres over 2001.

Albín Marenčík, director of the agricultural marketing department at the Slovak Agriculture and Food Chamber (SPPK), said that the increased quota was caused mainly by increased milk sales over the last two months of 2001.
