Trade Policy

Flags of several nations

Although the American market for dairy products is substantial, over 95 percent of the world's consumers live outside U.S. borders. Many U.S. dairy processing companies compete in foreign markets, and IDFA is committed to advocating for improved international trade opportunities.

Currently, about 15.5 percent of U.S. farm milk production goes to make dairy products for dairy export. In 2014, the United States exported over $7.1 billion worth of dairy products around the world, and great potential exists for increasing this amount. To take advantage of these new markets, U.S. dairy exporters must be able to compete in a fair environment, but dairy product tariffs and subsidy practices around the world can hinder U.S. access.
