 CWT Assists with 1.3 Million Pounds of Cheese and Whole Milk Powder  

Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) has accepted 7 requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America, Michigan Milk Producers, and Northwest Dairy Association (Darigold), who have contracts to sell 553.360 pounds (251 metric tons) of Cheddar, and Monterey Jack cheese, and 749,572 pounds (340 metric tons) of whole milk powder to customers in Asia, the Middle East, and South America. The product has been contracted for delivery in the period from May through November 2015.

Year-to-date, CWT has assisted member cooperatives who have contracts to sell 31.475 million pounds of cheese, 26.482 million pounds of butter, and 20.071 million pounds of whole milk powder to twenty eight countries on five continents. The amounts of Cheese, Butter and Whole Milk Powder in these sales contracts represent the equivalent of 1.033 billion pounds of milk on a milkfat basis.

The amounts of cheese 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.
