July Cwt-Assisted Dairy Export Sales Totaled 4.7 Million Pounds

CWT member cooperatives secured 27 contracts in August, adding 3.7 million pounds of American-type cheeses, 110,000 pounds of butter, 44,000 pounds of whole milk powder and 866,000 pounds of cream cheese to CWT-assisted sales in 2022. In milk equivalent, this is equal to 44 million pounds of milk on a milkfat basis. These products will go customers in Asia, Central America, Middle East-North Africa, Oceania and South America, and will be shipped from July through January 2023.

CWT-assisted 2022 dairy product sales contracts year-to-date total 57.2 million pounds of American-type cheese, 459,000 pounds of butter, 6.5 million pounds of cream cheese and 28.6 million pounds of whole milk powder. This brings the total milk equivalent for the year to 797 million pounds on a milkfat basis.

Exporting dairy products is critical to the viability of dairy farmers and their cooperatives across the country. Whether or not a cooperative is actively engaged in exporting cheese, butter, anhydrous milkfat, cream cheese, or whole milk powder, moving products into world markets is essential. CWT provides a means to move domestic dairy products to overseas markets by helping to overcome U.S. dairy’s trade disadvantages.
