ARLINGTON, VA - Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) accepted three requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America and Darigold to sell a total of 1,350 metric tons (2.976 million pounds) of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese to customers in Asia and the Middle East. The product will be delivered May through July.

In 2011, CWT has assisted members in making export sales of Cheddar, Monterey Jack, and Gouda cheese totaling 10,364 metric tons (22.8 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.
