US Dairy Export Council

U.S. Dairy Export Council

The U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC) – established by dairy farmers – unites all segments of the industry to build global sales of U.S. dairy products. USDEC’s mission is to enhance demand for U.S. dairy products and ingredients by securing access and assisting suppliers to meet market needs that facilitate sales. We accomplish this through research and collaboration with members, government, academia and numerous related organizations whose common goal is to ensure the health and vitality of the U.S. dairy industry.

U.S. dairy exports have more than quadrupled over the last 16 years, from less than $1 billion in 2000 to nearly $5 billion in 2016. Currently, Mexico is the largest importer of dairy products, buying one-fourth of what is exported.
