On March 5, 2021, the Fourth Session of the 13th National People’s Congress will be held in Beijing. The National Two Sessions held in the first year of the”14th Five-Year Plan”,”high-quality development” has become a topic of concern from all walks of life. Shi Yudong, a representative of the National People’s Congress from Mengniu, brought his thoughts on promoting the high-quality development of China’s dairy industry at the two sessions. In response to the weak growth of raw milk production and the slowing growth of dairy production that China’s dairy industry is currently facing, Shi Yudong proposed in his recommendations to establish a dynamic milk powder reserve mechanism, to strengthen technological innovation and R&D upgrades in the dairy industry.
Strengthen industry independent innovation and lead the high-quality development of China’s dairy industry
At present, China’s dairy industry has experienced a period of rapid development and adjustment, and is at a critical stage of striding forward to high quality. With the improvement of people’s living standards and the upgrading of consumer demand, my country’s dairy production scale continues to expand, the quality of dairy products is improving day by day, and the level of modernization continues to improve. China is rising from a big dairy country to a strong dairy country.
Data show that in the past five years, the country’s total milk output has stabilized at more than 30 million tons, and the total milk output has been around 27 million tons. In terms of milk source indicators, process technology, quality testing and other aspects, China’s dairy industry has reached the international leading level, and consumer confidence has greatly increased.
Establish a dynamic milk powder reserve mechanism to help a virtuous cycle in the dairy industry
During the rapid development of China’s dairy industry, dairy products as a whole are increasingly showing development trends such as high-quality, multi-nutrient, and powerful functions. Among them, innovation has played a leading role in promoting development acceleration. Shi Yudong said that as China’s dairy industry strengthens technological innovation and research and development upgrades, the emergence of some new technologies will greatly help the transformation and upgrading of the dairy industry. Advanced technologies such as membrane filtration can extend the shelf life of low-temperature milk and promote the rapid development of low-temperature milk to a certain extent.
Under the development trend of world economic integration, with the continuous escalation of domestic consumer demand, China’s dairy industry is also facing some new problems and challenges. The main manifestations are:the weak growth of raw milk production, the slowdown of dairy production growth, and the The price is relatively high in the ranks of milk prices. The contradiction between raw milk production and dairy consumption is unbalanced geographically and seasonally for a long time. The structural and seasonal surplus and shortage of dairy products coexist at the same time.
In the past five years, the average annual growth rate of domestic raw milk supply has been significantly lower than the growth rate of consumption. It is predicted that the growth rate of raw milk supply in the next five years will still be far behind the growth rate of consumption. In the long run, domestic fresh milk supply will be in short supply.
Shi Yudong suggested that the industrial structure should be adjusted by establishing a sound milk powder purchasing and storage mechanism and supporting the development of deep processing businesses such as cheese. At the same time, by supporting domestic companies to deploy overseas milk sources, using new technologies such as concentrated milk, and implementing measures such as milk powder reserves to effectively break Periodic and regional restrictions to ensure the stable development of domestic dairy production and the market.
Enhance the international discourse power of China’s dairy industry, build a strong advantage in industrial development
At present, China’s dairy industry is facing new opportunities for transformation and upgrading and moving towards high-quality development. At the same time, it is also facing severe problems and arduous challenges. It urgently needs the joint efforts of the government, industry and enterprises.
Under the increasingly complex international political and economic situation, it is necessary to fully tap the development momentum and potential of domestic industries, make full use of the domestic The new development pattern of”recycling and mutual promotion” continuously improves the stability and competitiveness of the industrial chain and supply chain, continuously improves the position and role of China’s dairy industry in the global dairy industry chain and value chain, and expands its international influence and voice.
As a leading enterprise in China’s dairy industry, Mengniu has always been committed to further enhancing the stability of the supply chain and the competitiveness of the industrial chain, building a more stable and controllable global industrial chain, actively participating in international consultation and co-construction, and contributing to the development of China’s dairy industry. To win a greater voice in the world, scientifically develop overseas resources, production capacity and market layout, continue to tackle key technical fields, and provide consumers with higher-quality products and services.
