The U.S. and Mexican dairy industries have pledged to continue working together on key issues affecting their sectors. This commitment comes after a recent meeting in Chihuahua, Mexico, where representatives discussed challenges and opportunities.

The U.S. delegation, led by the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) and U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC), included farmers and industry experts. Their Mexican counterparts came from leading producer and processor organizations.

Discussions centered on shared challenges and goals, including promoting dairy consumption, improving farm productivity, and defending the image of dairy products. Both sides acknowledged the value of a strong partnership for tackling these issues.

A key outcome of the meeting was a joint statement outlining specific areas of collaboration. These include:

  • Facilitating trade between the two countries. 

  • Sharing information on market performance and best practices. 

  • Advocating for common interests in international forums. 

  • Promoting technological exchange and training in dairy production and safety. 

  • Working together on sustainability, animal welfare, and farm labor issues. 

 This renewed commitment is expected to benefit both the U.S. and Mexican dairy industries. Increased collaboration can lead to more efficient trade, improved product quality, and a stronger voice for dairy producers on the global stage.
