The U.S. and Argentina have agreed to terms that will allow U.S. pork to enter the Argentine market for the first time since 1992. Under the agreement, all fresh, chilled and frozen pork and pork products from U.S. animals will be eligible for export to Argentina. Argentine food safety officials will visit the U.S. to conduct on-site verification of the U.S. meat inspection system, after which U.S. pork exports will resume pending resolution of any outstanding technical issues. The agreement was announced following an August 15 meeting between Vice President Mike Pence and Argentinian President Mauricio Macri.
