ARLINGTON, VA - Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) accepted four requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America to sell a total of 710 metric tons (1.565 million pounds) of Cheddar cheese to customers in Asia and North Africa. The product will be delivered April through August.

In 2011, CWT has assisted members in making export sales of Cheddar, Monterey Jack, and Gouda cheese totaling 11,074 metric tons (24.4 million pounds) to 16 countries on three continents.

Assisting CWT members through the Export Assistance program positively impacts producer milk prices in the short-term and long-term by helping member cooperatives gain and maintain market share, thus expanding the demand for U.S. dairy products.

CWT will pay export bonuses to the bidders only when delivery of the product is verified by the submission of the required documentation.
