U.S. Sausage, Other Products to be Exported to Nigeria
USAgNet - 01/17/2022
Nigeria announced it is partially opening its market to U.S. pork, allowing imports of sausage and similar products.
The National Pork Producers Council welcomed the move by the West African nation and thanked USDA and the government of Nigeria for their efforts to reach an export agreement.
While other U.S. pork products--and beef and poultry--remain ineligible to be exported to Nigeria, NPPC, which has been working for several years to open the Nigerian market, is optimistic that the country’s partial opening will lead to more access for U.S. pork.
