Vilsack (Czar,USDA) 2 Travel 2 Japan as Goodwill Ambassidor for Meat Industry

Challenges Linger As Japan Accepts Beef From U.S.
03/31/2010 11:12AM

Food Manufacturing reports Tom Vilsack’s comments Tuesday on the difficulty he’ll face in his continued efforts to persuade Japan to fully reopen its beef market to the U.S.

Japan had been the U.S.’ primary export market until they discontinued imports from the U.S.

Worries over food safety following the mad cow disease scare remain a key concern as Vilsack meets with Japanese officials. When asked about Tokyo’s control on U.S. beef imports Vilsack expects forward progress.

Tokyo closed imports from the U.S. following the first case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, mad cow disease, in 2003 but has recently allowed beef from cattle 20 months and younger. Under the initiative by President Obama’s administration, Vilsack begins a five day tour to Japan next Monday in efforts to double total U.S. exports over five years.
