The National Turkey Federation (NTF) released the following statement on the United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) agreement:

“Mexico and Canada are key export markets for the U.S. turkey industry. The USMCA will help to ensure that America’s turkey growers and processors have fair access to these markets and takes important steps to stabilize the U.S.’s trade relationship with our neighbors. The agreement will result in a 29 percent increase in U.S. exports to Canada. Robust export markets are vital in growing the turkey industry. When given the chance to compete head-to-head on price and quality, U.S. turkey producers have shown their ability to respond in providing the world with wholesome, delicious turkey products. There are many trade challenges that remain for the turkey industry, but this agreement is a very welcome development. We look forward to working with the Administration to expand opportunities for U.S. turkey exports.”
