	Whole milk powder prices in Western Europe weakened. Markets are quiet and 
sales are slower domestically and for export. EU manufacturers note that it is 
challenging to significantly increase global exports of EU manufactured WMP at 
this time.
       January-September EU WMP exports, 274,717 MT, increased 4.0 percent from the 
same period one year earlier, according to Eucolait. The range of monthly 
percentage changes in cumulative export volumes varies from +3.6 percent in July, 
to +19.9 percent in January. Export volumes and primary destinations are shown in 
the following table:
