Japan Will Accept U.S. Sheep and Goat Exports07/16/2018
Japan has finalized technical requirements allowing U.S. sheep and goat exports into the country for the first time in more than 14 years.
“This success is a direct result of USDA’s dedication to helping America’s farmers and ranchers keep and find new markets for their products,” said Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. “The United States has a reputation for high quality agricultural products and this administration is committed to helping U.S. producers prosper and share these products with the world.”
Last year, Japan imported $169 million in sheep and goat meat, primarily from Australia and New Zealand. More details on Japan’s export requirements are available from the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service Export Library at: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/international-affairs/exporting-products/export-library-requirements-by-country/Japan.
