In Output select either No Colour Conversion or Convert to Destination and make sure your destination profile also uses CMY> Convert to Destination may change the CMYK values if your destination profile does not match your document profile. Convert to Destination (Preserve Numbers) will not alter the CMYK values in your file.

Hi @Brigit Ananya , Also, any of the default PDF/X presets, which are designed for offset printing, will Export document CMYK colors unchanged.
