Dairy group will ship cheese to Middle East
June 10, 2010
Cooperatives Working Together has accepted one bid from Dairy Farmers of America and two bids from Darigold for a total of 1.65 million pounds of cheddar cheese to be exported to the Middle East. The product will be delivered June through December.
Since CWT reactivated the Export Assistance program on March 18, it has assisted members in making export sales of cheddar cheese totaling 36.1 million pounds to 18 countries on four continents. Figures have been adjusted as a result of a cancellation and slight adjustments in amounts.
