USAPEEC executive committee and staff discuss trade issues with Perdue in D.C.

Members of USAPEEC’s executive committee and staff met with U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue in Washington, D.C. last week for a discussion of key trade issues facing the poultry industry, and the group came away with a positive feeling.

“They listened to our concerns. It was not just a meeting out of courtesy,” said chairman Marc Killebrew. “It was refreshing to see an administration that was open to seeing us.”

South Korea once again open to U.S. exports after ban is lifted

The U.S. poultry industry received some good news last week when the South Korean Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (MAFRA) announced that it had officially lifted a ban on U.S. poultry imports.

With that action, the South Korean market became open for products produced from poultry slaughtered on or after Aug. 16, 2017.

South Korea had imposed the ban after a detection last March of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in a commercial poultry flock at a broiler breeder farm in Lincoln County, Tenn.
