The World Should be Your Market
Producing the safest and the most wholesome and nutritious pork products found anywhere on the planet does not mean the U.S. pork industry automatically gets access to all the world’s markets. That takes hard work and often involves overcoming significant foreign tariff and non-tariff barriers. The key to keeping U.S. pork exports flowing is free trade agreements (FTAs), which can eliminate such obstacles.
U.S. pork is shipped to more than 100 countries, and those exports add significantly to the bottom line of each pork producer. Opening new and expanding existing markets for U.S. pork exports through FTAs is vital to the industry’s continued success.
