Nogales, AZ. – With President Trump’s signing of the USMCA, American consumers can continue to count on high quality fruits and vegetables as part of their diet, all year-round, according to the Fresh Produce Association of the Americas.

“When the United States is out of season, like right now in January, Mexico is an important source for tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, melons and so many healthy parts of our diets,” said FPAA President Lance Jungmeyer. “Approval of the USMCA means continued tariff-free access to fresh produce. If the agreement went away, Americans would have ended up paying more to eat healthfully. The new agreement will help families continue to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables into their diets.”
