U.S. poultry gains new market access in Morocco
The United States is the world’s second largest poultry exporter, with global sales of poultry meat and products of $4.3 billion last year.
In May 2018, U.S. exports of agricultural products exceeded $12 billion (latest data available).
Initial estimates indicate that Morocco would be a $10 million market, with additional growth over time.
Morocco had prohibited imports of U.S. poultry. Officials from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and the U.S. Department of Agriculture worked with the Moroccan government to provide assurances on the safety of U.S. poultry. ■
