WASHINGTON, DC – The North American Meat Institute (NAMI or the Meat Institute) today applauded Senate confirmation of Alexis Taylor to be Undersecretary of Agriculture for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs.
“The meat and poultry industry supported Taylor’s nomination,” said Meat Institute President and CEO Julie Anna Potts. “Alexis’ experience working in Congress, in the Department and as Oregon Secretary of Agriculture make her uniquely qualified for this role,” said Potts. “She is the right person at the right time to lead the nation’s focus on strengthening exports, expanding access to new markets and navigating an increasingly unpredictable global economy. We look forward to working with her especially as meat and poultry products are seeing record demand at home and abroad.”
