The National Turkey Federation (NTF) released a statement today following the signing of the new United States-Japan Trade Agreement. In 2018, the U.S. turkey industry exported over 17.5 million pounds of turkey products to the Japanese market.

“NTF applauds the Trump Administration’s success in securing a bilateral trade deal with Japan, one of our nation’s top trade partners and the U.S. turkey industry’s third largest export market,” said Joel Brandenberger, NTF president. “Under this deal, U.S. turkey products will receive favorable tariff reductions, enabling our products to compete more effectively. This relationship delivers on NTF’s substantial efforts to increase access to U.S. turkey products abroad and get more turkey on tables worldwide.”
