PMA Statement on the Termination of the Tomato Suspension Agreement


In response to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s termination of the agreement on May 7 suspending the antidumping investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico, the Produce Marketing Association issued the following statement:

Trade is critical for the produce and floral industry, as the buying and selling of these products – including tomatoes – occurs in a global marketplace. The impact of the previous agreement for U.S. consumers has been year-round availability of fresh produce at an affordable price. We understand that there are different perspectives on the success of the suspension agreement on tomatoes among market participants.  What everyone should be able to agree upon is the need for transparency and predictability.  We urge the U.S. Department of Commerce and representatives of the Mexican government to expedite their discussions and come to an agreement that works for the industry in both countries.
