U.S. dairy already benefiting from Japan trade deal
January 14, 2020 By Mark Dorenkamp Filed Under: Dairy, News
The U.S. dairy industry is already seeing the benefits of
the trade deal with Japan.
Jaime Castaneda with the U.S. Dairy Export Council says with
the lowering of tariffs as part of the bilateral agreement, exports of U.S. cheese
and other products have increased.
He says while the sales are great, the fact that the U.S. is
now on a level playing field with Australia, New Zealand and the European Union
is a major relief.
Castaneda points out Japanese tariffs on U.S. cheddar have fallen around four percent since the trade deal went into effect January first.
