Pork trade tables are turning … for the better

Maria Zieba, National Pork Producers Council director of international affairs, spoke on challenges and strides that U.S. pork has made in the global marketplace during the 2020 Wisconsin Corn-Soy-Pork Expo in the Wisconsin Dells.
The U.S. pork industry is slowly working back to a level playing field on the global trade market.

U.S. pig farmers produce the safest, highest quality pork product in the world, but getting it into the hands of consumers around the globe has proven difficult due to renegotiating trade deals, tariff tit-for-tats and other trade deals falling apart.

The tide is starting to turn as a deal with Japan has been completed, Phase 1 of a deal with China is being worked out and the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement awaits ratification from the Canadian parliament.

Maria Zieba, National Pork Producers Council director of international affairs, explains how we got through 2019, and what this year holds for the pork industry, specifically in the arena of exports. In this video from the Wisconsin Corn-Soy-Pork Expo, she also highlights some other countries that are on the U.S. pork export radar.
