Minnesota Milk Producer Leader Concerned With Canadian Cheese Duty

Minnesota Milk Producer Leader Concerned With Canadian Cheese Duty

Tensions between the United States and Canada have occurred recently due to the Canadians placing an import duty on U.S. cheese sold into their country. Minnesota Milk Producers Association President Pat Lunnemann says exports are critical to America’s dairy industry with cheese an important part of that.

Canada recently imposed a 245.5 per cent tariff designed to protect their domestic dairy industry. Lunnemann says that flies in the face of free trade between the U.S. and Canada. He says it also brings a negative impact to U.S. dairy producers.

Lunnemann congratulates U.S. Trade Ambassador Isi Siddiqui for taking action immediately in protesting Canada’s action and asking for a quick resolution.
