Jul 26, 2016NPC joins US Agriculture Coalition for Cuba
The National Potato Council (NPC) has joined more than 100 national grower organizations, state grower associations, and agribusiness members as part of the U.S. Agriculture Coalition for Cuba (USACC). The coalition’s goal is to reestablish Cuba as a market for U.S. food and ag exports, NPC said in a news release.
The coalition believes that expanding agricultural trade between the U.S. and Cuba is the foundation for building successful and enduring relations between both countries, according to NPC. As a member, NPC will help cultivate momentum between key stakeholders, especially in potato growing, and assist in ending the longstanding embargo, NPC said in the news release.
We are committed to this coalition and its goal of liberalizing trade between our countries,” said John Keeling, NPC executive vice president and CEO. To learn more, visit the U.S. Agriculture Coalition for Cuba website.
