The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) and the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC) spent 2022 working to promote the interests of American dairy producers. As U.S. dairy exports celebrate another record year in both value and volume, several key policy victories are cause for celebration in the new year.

Key policy wins, according to NMPF and USDEC include:

>> President Biden signing the Ocean Shipping Reform Act into law

>> Pushing the U.S. government to proactively defend the rights of U.S. cheesemakers to advance access to foreign markets

>> Holding Canada responsible through the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement to fulfill export obligations

>> Finalizing partnerships with the Chilean National Federation of Producers and Rural Society of Argentina to advance shared policy priorities internationally
