DES MOINES – The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has been notified by Vietnam that it will accept pork offal exports from the US, reports WNAX Radio. The National Pork Producers negotiated diligently with US and Vietnamese government officials to get them to lift the ban on American pork variety meat exports, said Nick Giordano, NPPC vice president and international trade counsel.

Vietnam is an important market for US pork, Giordano says, and NPPC is also working with them as part of the Trans Pacific Partnership discussions. Both parties are trying to achieve elimination of all tariffs and non-tariff barriers.

Vietnam is second only to Japan as a US pork customer in the Far East, Giordano says.
