The U.S. Dairy Export Council says cheese exports in January were over 32,000 metric tons up 46 percent from a year ago and a record for the third consecutive month.

While new sales were contributed some, shipments to existing customers were where the strength was. Sales to Mexico were up 38% vs. prior year, while South Korea (+36%), Canada (+38%), Australia (+142%) and China (+100%).

U.S. exporters also ramped up shipments of butterfat, whole milk powder and milk protein concentrate. Lactose exports improved in January with a big jump in sales to Southeast Asia.

Exports of nonfat dry milk/skim milk powder were higher than the diminished levels of last January, but well below the levels registered in the last nine months of 2013. The slowdown in NDM/SMP exports is attributed to greater competition, particularly from the EU-28, which saw a milk production increase of 4.3% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Exports of dry whey and whey protein concentrate (WPC) continue to lag prior-year levels.
