December 4, 2015

Nick Giordano, Vice President and Counsel, Global Government Affairs for the National Pork Producers Council, explains that the World Trade Organization will announce the level of retaliation tariffs Mexico and Canada can use against the United States in response to the Mandatory Country of Origin Labeling law and that retaliatory actions are likely to immediately follow the announcement. He stresses that Mexico and Canada will accept nothing less than a complete repeal of the law and offers up alternative approaches to labeling standards.
