US: Halt in potato exports to Mexico manageable

Though the stop to U.S. potato exports to Mexico has been unfortunate, not being able to ship potatoes deep into Mexico is not likely to significantly affect export programs this year. “The Mexican market is a very important market for us, and increased access to that market would be beneficial,” said John Toaspern, chief marketing officer for the United States Potato Board. “But, in the big scheme, it will not impact our total exports.” While access to the Mexican market beyond 26 kilometers was granted to U.S. shippers earlier this year, that access was rescinded this summer. But because of the timing of the granting and revocation of access, shippers will not be significantly affected.
