Big Opportunity in Trade Deals

The U.S. is currently is involved in several bilateral free trade negotiations Рincluding talks with Pacific Rim and European Union nations. National Pork Producers Council President Randy Spronk says through the Trans-Pacific Partnership there’s an opportunity to double trade with Japan, which already stands at $2 billion of annual pork sales.

As for the European Union – he says this is the second largest consumer group in the world – but the U.S. pork industry has been restricted from exporting product to the EU due to trade blocks.

NPPC wants free trade between the U.S. and EU which would add value for U.S. pork producers.
