Our pork exports to Mexico are remaining strong despite a suspension extension

U.S. pork exports to Mexico remain strong despite the country extending its suspension of import duties on certain foods.

The U.S. Meat Export Federation says the move, which includes pork, beef, and poultry, has benefited both the European Union and Brazil. However, in November, Mexico temporarily halted access for Brazil due to sanitary reasons.

The U.S. and Canada already have duty-free access to Mexico through USMCA. The Federation says it will be difficult for the EU or Brazil to cut into the U.S. market share, which is currently at 84 percent.

The suspension will remain through the end of the year.
