CWT Assists with 961,216 Pounds of Cheese and Butter Export Sales



ARLINGTON, VA
Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) has accepted five requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America, Northwest Dairy Association (Darigold), and Tillamook County Creamery Association that have contracts to sell 740,753 pounds (336 metric tons) of Cheddar, Gouda and Monterey Jack cheese as well as 220,462 pounds (100 metric tons) of butter to customers in the Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. The product has been contracted for delivery in the period from October 2017 through January 2018.

So far this year, CWT has assisted member cooperatives who have contracts to sell 55.558 million pounds of American-type cheeses, and 4.556 million pounds of butter (82% milkfat) to 21 countries on five continents. The sales are the equivalent of 615.303 million pounds of milk on a milkfat basis.

Assisting CWT members through the Export Assistance program in the long term helps member cooperatives gain and maintain market share, thus expanding the demand for U.S. dairy products and the U.S. farm milk that produces them. This, in turn, positively affects all U.S. dairy farmers by strengthening and maintaining the value of dairy products that directly impact their milk price.

The amounts of dairy products and related milk volumes reflect current contracts for delivery, not completed export volumes. CWT will pay export assistance to the bidders only when export and delivery of the product is verified by the submission of the required documentation.
