CLFP Industries Issues Webinar -The Agriculture Export Crisis: Who and What Caused It? Why Does It Continue? What Are the Solutions?
Over the past year, the American economy, and particularly the agriculture sector has grappled with widespread delays, bottlenecks, and increasing fees at our ports. This originated with the COVID pandemic, and is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. With more than 20% of U.S. agricultural production aimed for export, reaching foreign markets is essential to American producers and the viability of our agricultural sector at large. Peter Friedmann, Executive Director of the Agriculture Transportation Coalition, is recognized and frequently quoted as fierce advocate for agriculture’s international transportation interests, in Washington DC and nationwide. He will address ongoing challenges facing food processors, with particular focus on exporting and importing through the California ports upon which our food processors depend.
