  • INFOGRAPHIC: What the U.S. Dairy Export Council did to help lift 2021 exports to new highs

    By USDEC February 28, 2022

    USDEC removed barriers and opened doors during a record-setting 2021. A shareable infographic quantifies, illustrates and illuminates. 

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture released year-end 2021 export data in February. As expected, U.S. dairy exports came through with double-digit growth to surpass all-time records for volume and value.

    Export volume in 2021 increased 10% to 2.3 million metric tons (milk solids equivalent), eclipsing the previous record of 2.1 million metric tons set in 2020.

    Sales (value) jumped 18% to $7.75 billion, beating the previous record of $7.24 billion set in 2014.

    As a nonprofit dairy exports accelerator, the U.S. Dairy Export Council doesn't take credit for this performance. Many factors are at play, including global dairy supply-and-demand dynamics and herculean efforts by USDEC member companies. 

    USDEC has the experts on dairy exports. While we can never take full credit for U.S. dairy exports, we did make a difference for our members and the entire U.S. dairy industry.

    With that in mind, we asked USDEC departments to give us quantifiable examples of their efforts in the record-setting year of 2021. We put the best examples in the infographic above. We hope you share with your audiences and connections.
