CWT assists with 1.9 million lbs. of cheese export sales
Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) accepted six requests for export assistance from Bongards and Darigold to sell 1.896 million lbs. of cheddar, Gouda and Monterey Jack cheese to customers in Asia, North Africa and the Middle East. The product will be delivered May through November 2013.
So far in 2013, CWT has assisted member cooperatives in selling 52.877 million lbs. of cheese, 51.727 million lbs. of butter, 44,092 lbs. of AMF, and 218,258 lbs. of whole milk powder to 31 countries on six continents. These sales are the equivalent of 1.617 billion lbs. of milk on a milkfat basis. That is more than USDA’s projected increase in milk marketings for all of 2013.
