EEUU: US potato farmers seek new trade deal with Mexico

Currently, American potato farmers and exporters are mostly barred from selling fresh potatoes in Mexico due to restrictions by the Mexican government, namely that US growers can only sell fresh potatoes within a 26-kilometer zone across the Mexican

Shawn D. Boyle, president and general counsel of the Idaho Growers Shippers Association: “The US ships frozen potatoes, dehydrated potatoes and fresh potatoes to Mexico, but fresh potatoes do not have full access into Mexico. There’s actually been a number of legal actions in Mexico that have halted fresh potatoes from being granted access, full access, into Mexico right now — so that’s really what we’re asking for, a level playing field.”

Recently, US Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue got a ‘thank you’ letter for voicing support for the US potato industry. Perdue was part of a recent US House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on whether to grant Mexico further access to a $2 billion US avocado market. Perdue suggested any further avocado access for Mexico should include more US fresh potatoes being granted access into Mexico.
