Within the EU, the large companies are mainly responsible for the production

value in the dairy industry. In France, Italy and Spain the companies with fewer

than 20 employees have a substantial position in the market altogether, but in

all other countries the production value of companies with fewer than 50 employees

is negligible.

In Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom medium-sized

companies together have a substantial part of the market. In most other countries

the large companies dominate the market.
