Risk Management


We know dairy. We understand dairy.
 We are the dairy experts.

Burt Lewis Ingredients is able to help customers manage the volatility of their dairy costs allowing customers to achieve their budgeted and profitability targets.

In today’s increasingly volatile and uncertain dairy market, trying to manage your margins is becoming more and more difficult.

Burt Lewis Ingredients can help you to manage the volatility of your dairy costs, allowing you to achieve budget and profitability targets while freeing up your time to focus on other important tasks.

One of the unique traits of the US dairy industry is that it has a very well developed dairy derivatives market operated by the CME. The CME offers these derivatives (futures, options, swaps) to dairy buyers and sellers in order to manage price risk exposure.

At Burt Lewis Ingredients we specialize in using these derivatives to offer you, our customer, the option of forward contracting volumes 3, 6, 9 or 12 months in advance at fixed prices, which in turn provides a guaranteed margin for that portion of your business.
