Off-season milk is characterized by a dry climate, which impairs the availability and quality of pastures. Besides, the effects of La Niña and the increase in production costs were largely responsible for the sharp rise in prices.

The Center for Advanced Studies in Applied Economics (Cepea), which publishes the monthly Milk Bulletin, explained that the combination of these factors is what caused the prices that frighten consumers.

Cepea researcher Natália Grigol explains that since La Ninã is in its second year in a row, producers have not yet been able to recover from the drought of 2021. This phenomenon occurs when the waters of the Pacific Ocean have cooled.

Even in light of the high prices paid for the product”, emphasizes the researcher.
