 Provisional

*Please note the 2009/10 milk year is based on EU27 data.

Please note Spain data provisional from January 2010, France data provisional from January 2010, Slovenia data provisional from January 2013 and UK data provisional from January 2007.

Figures from January 2007 to August 2012 and October 2012 to December 2013 do not include Malta's milk delivery data due to confidentiality. It was estimated they only produced around 3,000 - 6,000 tonnes per month which would not substantially affect the percentage increase/decrease shown.
