Central Europe accounts for about 20% of continental milk production. Built on a certain tradition, mainly in the Carpathians, production was particularly developed during the communist period on large collective farms associated with industrial dairies. After 1989, this system was greatly transformed, leading to the near total reorganisation of channels (production and processing). Twenty-five years later, the analysis shows significant regional differences between zones that adapted to the new context and became dynamic dairy territories (ex-GDR, Poland, the Baltic states), and others which did not adapt as they lacked organisation and competitiveness (Romania, Bulgaria, Balkan states outside the EU).
