US, Mexico produce companies discuss trade and policies

Fresh Produce Association of the Americas holds its annual meeting in Arizona

The Fresh Produce Association of the Americas welcomed companies that operate on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border to its annual two-day policy summit March 14-15 in Tubac, Arizona. Attendees from the companies faced a packed agenda filled with concerns involving the importation of fresh fruits and vegetables from Mexico’s interior that are transported to, and then across, the international border.

FPAA President Lance Jungmeyer: “Regulators from the U.S., Mexico, and Canada get a chance for open dialogue and updates on a variety of industry topics concerning policies and regulations that impact importation of Mexican produce. It’s all part of our mission to create partnerships that help guide the produce industry toward long-term positive changes.”

Major topics included: Strategies to Reduce Travel Time for Fresh Produce; Industry Challenges Ahead in Congress; Marketing Orders and the Supply Chain; Conducting Non-Intrusive Inspections at Ports of Entry; Food Safety Discussions Between the U.S. and Mexico, and an updated State-of-the-Industry assessment.
