U.S., Europe Loosen Trade Barriers For Certified Organic Products

June 4, 2012: 09:20 PM EST
The U.S. and the European Union have partnered to in an “equivalency arrangement” to make it easier to market certified organic products in both regions. The USDA said the partnership, whose goal is to create a level playing field for U.S. organic products in Europe, will open new markets for American farmers and ranchers, create more opportunities for small businesses and create jobs for Americans who “grow, package, ship, and market organic products.” The U.S. has  signed a similar arrangement with Canada; additional equivalency arrangement negotiations have begun with South Korea, Taiwan and Japan.
