Indian market open to U.S., as first import permits issued

A landmark week that began with news that the Indian market would finally open, culminated with the first import permits being issued for frozen U.S. poultry and breeding stock.

USAPEEC member Globex International became the first company to gain a permit, and its air freight shipment will soon be on its way. Other shipments, from other companies, were in various stages of progress as well.

Earlier in the week, the governments of India and the U.S. finalized the export certificate for India, clearing the path for trade to a country that historically has been closed to poultry imports.

South Korea, U.S. reach agreement on regionalization

South Korea was growing into a top market for U.S. chicken, turkey, and eggs when highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) struck the U.S. in 2014-2015. It and other nations responded with countrywide bans on U.S. imports even though many states were not affected by HPAI.

Those broad restrictions ended up costing industry $4.2 billion in lost exports and domestic sales, about $387 million of which is attributable to South Korea.
