Cooperatives Working Together recently announced that it has accepted an export assistance bid last week for the sale of whole milk power.

The bid came from Humboldt Creamery of Fortuna, Calif., for the export of 165,000 pounds (75 metric tons) of whole milk powder to Egypt.

CWT will pay an export bonus to the bidder, only when delivery of the product is verified by the submission of the required documentation.

With this accepted bid, CWT’s total 2008 export obligations are: whole milk powder, 165,000 pounds (75 metric tons) and butter, 641,805 pounds (291.2 metric tons).

The CWT Export Assistance program, on a competitive bid basis, assists CWT members in selling U.S. dairy products in world markets. CWT’s export assistance program has helped sell cheese, butter, anhydrous milkfat and whole milk powder to 51 countries on four continents.
