Wheat organizations from The U.S., Canada and Mexico are urging negotiators to reach a successful NAFTA. In a letter addressed to negotiators and President Trump, several wheat-based groups from the three nations detailed the importance of the trade agreement to wheat growers and their associated industries.
National Association of Wheat Growers’ Gordon Stoner said: “The fact that wheat producers and end users from all three countries would speak with one voice about the importance of NAFTA should speak volumes to our leaders.”
In the letter, the groups emphasized that an updated trade deal is critical to ensure that all stakeholders can work together to provide the highest quality products at the greatest value for both the supply chain and consumers. Further, the letter states that an integrated supply chain between the three countries is only effective with NAFTA in place.
