Note: All data subject to retrospective changes. Import data excludes imports for inward processing (for the manufacture of finished products that are subsequently exported)
The decrease in Butter and Butteroil imports between Jan-May 2013, compared with 2012, is primarily due to large quantities being imported from New Zealand to the Netherlands and UK during the first half of 2012.
EU cheese imports for Jan-May 2013 were lower than Jan-May 2012.
