Within Italy, Lombary is the leading region of milk deliveries. The region consistently accounts for more than 40 percent of all milk deliveries. This is followed by Emilia-Romagna, which delivers almost a third of the milk amount which Lombary does. In recent years, however, the volume of milk produced in Italy saw a decrease. Most notably was 2019, where the production volume that year decreased significantly by more than 300 thousand tons compared to the previous year.
While fermented and condensed milk imports have increased, the consumption of these products within Italy have not. This could be partially due to the rise of speciality diets (such as veganism) worldwide. The consumption of fermented milk products in Italy saw a 5-year low as of 2019. In Italy, the majority of dairy product purchases are cheese and yogurts. Combined, these two items accounted for more than three quarters of all domestic expenditure on dairy products.
