U.S. Dairy facing “unintended consequences” of shutdowns in Mexico

The United States’ dairy exports are experiencing a hinderance due to the full administrative shut down of Mexico’s Ministry of Health.

The agency is responsible for the nation’s import permits, which are required for U.S. products to enter the country.

The National Milk Producers Federation says that initial contracts with the ministry suggested “full ramifications” including impact on trade, were not considered.

The NMFP is work with the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office and USDA to address the situation.
