The Trouble with Tariffs
Steve Stouffer, Group President, Tyson Fresh Meats
We know the U.S. beef and pork industry can compete globally when there’s a level playing field. A great example is South Korea, where we’re successfully shipping beef and pork products thanks to a free trade agreement that’s been in place in 2012. In fact, according to the USDA, U.S. beef and pork shipments to South Korea are up more than 40 percent this year. South Korea is the currently second largest U.S. beef export market by value and the fifth largest pork market.
The bottom line is that we’re in a global business. Stable market access is vital to our company and the farmers and ranchers who supply us, and it’s good for the customers around the world who want to buy our safe, high quality, great-tasting products.
