U.S. Dairy Exports Finished Record 2022 on a High Note
Strong customer and consumer demand for U.S. cheeses and dairy ingredients drove U.S. dairy exports to record heights in 2022, setting new volume and value records. It was the third straight record year for volume and the second for value, with new annual export records set for cheese, whey and lactose.
Export volume on a milk solids equivalent (MSE) basis increased 5% to 2.4 million metric tons (MT). Export volume in 2022 was equivalent to 18% of U.S. milk produced last year, also an all-time high. Export value increased 25% to $9.6 billion—the first time it has ever crossed the $9-billion mark.

U.S. Dairy a Key Player to Meet Growing Global Demand

Exports year-to-date are up 27% in value and 2% in volume compared to the same period last year, buoyed by a healing supply chain. In fact, the United States was the only major dairy exporter to see solid growth in exports over the past 12 months (July 2021-June 2022), reinforcing its advantages as the international supplier of choice for dairy products and ingredients.
