About milksolids reporting

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) collects information from dairy processors about milksolids. Our survey asks for:

  • total milksolids collected over the season
  • where the milksolids were collected from.

We use this to inform:

  • analysis on the development of competition in New Zealand dairy markets
  • our process for allocating dairy export licences under the Dairy Industry Restructuring Act.
