Avocados on treeAfter nearly a week of no Mexican avocado imports, the USDA announced Friday normal operations have resumed. Working closely with several government agencies and the Association of Avocado Producers and Packer Exporters of Mexico, USDA has enacted enhanced safety measures for inspectors working in the field after a threat was made to an employee on February 11.

Both countries will continue to work on fortifying strong bilateral supply chains to promote economic growth and prosperity.
