The 2015 milk crisis in Ba Vì: A market price adjustment?

In the beginning of 2015, the International Dairy Production Company (IDP) decided to change its milk procurement strategy in the Ba Vì District. This was perceived by most actors as a “milk crisis”, since many farmers complained about the drop of the price of milk. Moreover, the company decided to limit the quantities of milk purchased in the district, and several new farmers could not find outlets. A field visit conducted in March, 2016 in Ba Vì confirms that the milk price at farm gate has decreased from 13 000 VND/kg to 10 000 VND/kg since the beginning of 2015. Farmers have also been facing a concentration in milk collection, with a severe reduction of the number of milk collection points. This situation reveals an increased competition in the dairy industry in the whole country, caused by the rapid development of milk farms and by the decrease of the milk powder prices on the international market. We interprete the Ba Vi milk crisis as a result of both a change in the IDP strategy, and a long term “adjustment” on the milk market.
