NPPC’s trade team this week completed a series of meetings in Peru and Colombia to explore promising opportunities for U.S. pork producers. Peru is a small but growing market where current consumption of U.S. pork has considerable potential to expand. Colombia is an important and rapidly growing pork market where strong cooperation has expanded market opportunities in mutually beneficial ways.

In partnership with U.S. pork producers and the National Pork Board, domestic producers have worked aggressively to expand consumption of pork in Colombia. The meetings included a gathering of NPPC’s Trade Policy Committee in Lima to discuss trade policy issues and to meet with Peruvian pork producers, U.S. Embassy officials and Peruvian government officials.

Nick Giordano, NPPC counsel and vice president of global government affairs, traveled to Colombia where he explored trade opportunities with staff for Colombia’s national pork producers group, government officials, including the Colombian Minister of Trade, and importers.
