“We totaled out at $6.5. billion in 2020, that’s roughly a 10 percent increase over 2019.”

Daniel Whitley tells Brownfield Mexico, Canada, and China led as the top U.S. dairy importers despite COVID slowdowns which highlights the success of trade agreements and progress made on trade barriers.

“There’s still more work to do, they’re not resolved, we’ve got to get some of these additional barriers addressed and open up those markets for the American dairy industry,” he says.

Whitley adds Southeast Asia imported nearly $3 billion of dairy products last year and expects that region to remain a significant buyer as their middle class grows.

Dairy sales to Mexico were down eight percent in 2020 because of reduced pandemic sales and should also improve this year as recovery continues.

Last month, 14 of our dairy farms in Maine, as well as dozens of dairy farms across northern New England, got an unexpected and disappointing notice from Danone of North America saying that they were discontinuing their contracts with our organic dairy farmers in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and elsewhere.
