Cooperative Program Helps Export Cheese

Cooperative Program Helps Export Cheese

The voluntary Coopoeratives Working Together program provides export assistance to help sell 1.7 million pounds of cheese.

Cooperatives Working Together has excepted seven requests for export assistance from Darigold, Foremost Farms and Dairy Farmers of America to sell a total of 772 MT (1.702 million pounds) of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese to customers in North Africa, Europe, The Middle East and Asia.

Since CWT reactivated the Export Assistance program in March 18, 2010, it has assisted members in making export sales of Cheddar, Monterey Jack and Gouda cheese totaling 35,183 metric tons (77.6 million pounds) to 27 countries on four continents. In addition, sales of butter and anhydrous milkfat totaling 14,968 metric tons (33.0 million pounds) have been made to nine countries on three continents.

Assisting CWT members through the Export Assistance Program positively impacts producer milk prices in the short-term and in the long-term by helping member cooperatives to gain and maintain market share thus expanding the demand for U.S. dairy products.

CWT will pay export bonuses to the bidders, only when delivery of the product is verified by the submission of the required documentation.
