 Peri-urban milk production in Peru: Assessing farmers’ decision-making within a changing market
While historical data were used to track the evolution of milk production in the Lima Department in the past, expected future changes were analyzed by the application of a farm household optimization model to representative small-, medium-, and large farms in the region.
Results show that milk producers on the coast of Lima currently face favorable market conditions, as milk prices are much higher than in other regions, thanks to increased competition among local milk buyers, who are confronted with unused processing capacities and are unable to meet demand from their "local" market, Lima City.
Hence, the considerably higher milk prices in Lima (Figure 2) reflect two things: a certain “geographic protection”, because milk from other milksheds faces higher transportation and refrigeration costs when shipped to Lima, and an enhanced competition among local milk buyers trying to reduce their current processing over-capacity with higher milk purchases.
