Oregon and Pacific Northwest cheese makers are working to develop new markets and increasing exports to Asia. Cheese exports hit a high in May, even with a drop in sales to China as retaliatory tariffs continue. Growing disposable income in the prime Asia markets is likely to support the continued growth in demand for new varieties of cheese over the next few years.

The Oregon Dairy Council was supported by the Export Council of Oregon’s Barry Horowitz at the HOFEX show in Hong Kong (May 2019). This is one of Asia’s leading food and hospitality trade shows. By the numbers, this 4-day event showcases 2800 exhibitors from 74 countries, with more than 42,000 visiting trade buyers. Oregon cheese makers expect numerous deals to follow!
Barry Horowitz, former-Chair of the Export Council of Oregon, and Principal of CMS Consulting Services, has taught and written on International Supply Chain Management, Logistics, Transportation and Trade topics for more than 30 years. He is currently working with the Port of Portland and other Oregon traded sector agencies to develop international trade strategies and programs.
