Mexico May Soon Need Imported Corn for Tortillas

Mexican farmers say they may soon have to rely on imports or their famous white corn tortillas due to a 75% cut in state funding.

Subsidies at larger farms, hich account for the majority of production, were almost entirely eliminated. That could force Mexico’s second biggest miller to buy imported supplies. Mexico has historically been self-sufficient in white corn. The country’s Gg Minister says it’s prioritizing the most vulnerable farmers in the poor, rural regions.
