 CWT Assists with 3.2 Million Pounds of Cheese and Whole Milk Powder Export Sales  

Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) has accepted 9 requests for export assistance from Michigan Milk Producers Association and Northwest Dairy Association (Darigold) who have contracts to sell 456,357 pounds (207 metric tons) of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, and 2.756 million pounds (1250 metric tons) of whole milk powder to customers in Asia, Central and South America. The product has been contracted for delivery in the period from July through December 2015.

Year-to-date, CWT has assisted member cooperatives who have contracts to sell 42.348 million pounds of cheese, 30.395 million pounds of butter and 32.836 million pounds of whole milk powder to thirty one countries on five continents. The amounts of cheese, butter and whole milk powder in these sales contracts represent the equivalent of 1.314 billion pounds of milk on a milkfat basis.

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.
