U.S. dairy cooperative Dairy Farmers of America has formed a partnership with Mongolia's Yili Industrial Group, although the companies gave few details about what the alliance will entail. Analysts said they expect the companies to form a joint venture with DFA possibly supplying raw materials to Yili for high-end products. "By forming an alliance with DFA, Yili will be able to have a stable supply of whey powder. This reduces Yili's risks and helps the company realize optimal allocation of resources," said dairy industry analyst Song Liang.
