(IELTS Academic – 09/11/2023)
The charts demonstrate the three leading producers for four types of dairy products worldwide in 2012. Overall, a larger amount of milk was produced compared to other products. Additionally, while the European Union made the most milk and cheese, India was the top manufacturer of butter and China dominated milk powder production.
With regard to milk and cheese production, in the European Union the former stood at 142,970 metric tons, compared to 127,000 metric tons in India and 90,038 metric tons in the United States. In the same year, the European Union produced 7,120 metric tons of cheese, followed by 4,925 metric tons in the United States, and Brazil was far behind with only 700 metric tons.
Concerning the remaining products, butter production in India was recorded at 4,500 metric tons, more than double the figure for the European Union with 2,040 metric tons. However, just 810 metric tons of butter was made in the United States. Such a discrepancy was not seen in milk powder as the data for China and New Zealand were relatively comparable at 1,200 and 1,110 metric tons respectively, whilst the European Union manufactured 770 metric tons of milk powder
