Southeast Asia’s population surpassed 650 million this year, nearly doubling the U.S. population.

Looking ahead to 2050, the countries geographically south of China, east of India, west of New Guinea and north of Australia will continue to grow, with 142 million more mouths to feed, according to one population projection.


That demographic shift is a huge opportunity for U.S. dairy exports. It is one of many reasons the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC) signed a partnership agreement in May with the Food Innovation and Research Center (FIRC) at Singapore Polytechnic.
