The Voice of Dairy Farmers in Our Nation's Capital

Policy Priorities:

Protect the Future of U.S. Dairy Exports by Defending Common Cheese Names

America’s dairy farmers produce high-quality products that are renowned around the world. These exports drive economic growth and support jobs in rural communities across the United States. The European Union’s efforts to monopolize many common food names, such as “parmesan,” “asiago” and “feta,” continue to limit export market access for U.S. dairy farmers and their cooperatives. The dairy industry is counting on the U.S. government to take a proactive stance against these unjust trade barriers and make protecting common cheese terms a core policy objective in all U.S. current and future trade discussions.
