September 27, 2010

Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) accepted two requests from Darigold for assistance in selling 230 metric tons (507,063 pounds) of American cheese to customers in the Middle East. The product will be delivered in October 2010.
 
Since CWT reactivated the Export Assistance program March 18, 2010, it has assisted members in making export sales of Cheddar, Monterey Jack, and Gouda cheese totaling 20,192 metric tons (44.5 million pounds) to 23 countries on four continents. In addition, sales of butter and anhydrous milkfat totaling 15,018 metric tons (33.1 million pounds) have been made to nine 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.
 
Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) is being funded by dairy cooperatives and individual dairy farmers, who are contributing 10 cents per hundredweight assessment on their milk production through December 2010. The money raised by CWT’s investment is being apportioned between two supply management programs that strengthen and stabilize the national all milk price.
