USDA secures market access for US poultry exports to Colombia

"We’re pleased that Colombian officials are living up to the commitments outlined in the U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement", said USDA Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Alexis M. Taylor. "Holding our trading partners accountable is critical to ensuring the benefits of trade are felt by our farmers and ranchers across the United States and in their local communities".

"Reopening this market was of critical importance to U.S. poultry producers and to USDA", said USDA Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Jenny Lester Moffitt. "Our team collaborated tirelessly with Colombian officials to demonstrate that U.S. poultry and egg products do not pose an animal health risk and can be safely imported". 

Before the market was closed in August 2023 due to concerns over Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in the region, Colombia was the 10th largest market for U.S. poultry, with exports reaching $105 million in 2022.
