Uruguay Grants Full Market Access for U.S. Poultry Products

On April 21, 2014, Uruguay granted final approval for importing U.S. fresh and frozen poultry and poultry products (including U.S. fresh chicken).  Following several years of technical discussions, USDA representatives from APHIS and FSIS reached agreement with Uruguay on the sanitary measures for U.S. poultry products.  Access to Uruguay had been previously limited to U.S. fresh and frozen turkey meat for a seasonal market and U.S. cooked (processed) chicken meat.  U.S. poultry exports to Uruguay were valued at $250,000 in 2013 (up from $130,000 in 2012), with potential to expand further under this new agreement.
