Dairy Index DIA
Dairy Index DIA is calculated taking into account two key indicators, the weighted average price of milk in Russian regions and the Import Price Index. To calculate the weighted average price, the Center developed and launched the Index DIA crowdsourcing application, which allows one to accumulate current data on raw milk prices in Russian regions from direct market participants, milk producers and processors. The import price index is determined based on the prices of key exchange dairy products - SOM, SCM, butter, cheese and whey powder. Prices for imported dairy products are calculated taking into account prices for dairy products on the Belarusian Universal Commodity Exchange (BUCE) and prices on the Trigona Dairy Trade and GlobalDairyTrade platforms.
