The US Dairy Export Council (USDEC) told that manufacturers in the country were now having to strategically develop their operations in both its established and emerging export markets to ensure long term survival.

USDEC's comments follow the publication of new research by banking group Rabobank, which state that the country's dairy exports grew by 24 per cent during 2007, amounting to 11 per cent of the industry's total milk output for the year. This figure was up from just five per cent in 2002, according to the figures.
