NCC, USAPEEC Statement on Signing of US-South Africa Poultry Veterinary Trade Protocol

November 17, 2015

Attributable to Mike Brown, president, National Chicken Council and Jim Sumner, president, USA Poultry & Egg Export Council:

“We applaud the progress that has been made and support the regionalized approach to avian influenza as outlined in the Poultry Veterinary Trade Protocol.  Two obstacles still remain, though, one pertaining to food safety and the other is an acceptable quota allocation procedure by the South African government.  While this development is certainly positive, there is still work to be done and it is our opinion that this issue becomes resolved when U.S. chicken products are being enjoyed by South African consumers.”
