Canada Can Now Export Beef and Pork to Nicaragua

By , Farms.com

Canadian pork and beef producers can now export their products to Nicaragua. This is good news for cattle producers who haven’t gained full access to the Central American country since the 2003 BSE. For pork producers, this is the first signal for establishing market conditions for Canadian pork products.

"Our government understands that opening new markets to increase exports of our world-class beef and pork creates jobs and economic growth," said Canadian Agriculture Minister, Gerry Ritz. "Every international market opened means more dollars returning to the farm gate and another great opportunity for our livestock producers."

Gaining market access to Nicaragua signals a bigger vision for trade expansion efforts in Central America.
