U.S. potato shipments resume in Mexico

Exports of U.S. potatoes to Mexico resumed within the 16-mile region inside the U.S.-Mexican border July 7, but there is uncertainty when full access will be restored. After about a decade of limiting U.S. potato export sales to within 16 miles of the U.S. border, Mexican officials in mid-May opened all of Mexico to U.S. fresh potato exports. Citing pest concerns, a Mexican potato growers group filed a lawsuit to block the market expansion, however, and Mexico’s department of agriculture, SAGARPA, on June 9 temporarily suspended all U.S. fresh potatoes to Mexico.
