Milk and dairy products
The EU produces approximately 150 million tonnes of raw milk each year, which makes it the world's second producer after India. Production yields per cow vary significantly depending on the farming method, but can go up to 10,000 kg annually. The EU is a major exporter of cheese and other high-value dairy products.
