March 2, 2023

U.S. dairy exports set new records in 2022, helped along by work from NMPF in collaboration with the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC), policymakers and stakeholders who delivered on targeted policy priorities.

More than $9 billion of U.S. dairy products reached international customers in 2022, according to data finalized in February. The volume shipped accounted for 18% of total milk production. This marked the third straight record year for volume and the second for value.

In a year full of challenges, NMPF was proud to work with members and policymakers to find solutions to support dairy exporter, including:

  • Successfully pursuing solutions to the supply chain crisis, most notably on the Ocean Shipping Reform Act.
  • Defending U.S. dairy’s market access rights against barriers to trade in markets around the world including in Europe, Latin America, Canada, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.
  • Strengthening and expanding key partnerships to grow the global dairy industry’s influence with governments and organizations around the world.
