The Northeast Dairy Foods Association, Inc. (NDFA), a full-service dairy trade association representing dairy processors, manufacturers and distributors in the northeast United States, is urging the United States Senate and House of Representatives to vote on and pass the recently negotiated United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
“Due to the proximity of our members in New York and the New England states to Canada, this trade agreement will directly benefit the dairy industry in the northeast” said Bruce W. Krupke, Executive Vice President of NDFA. “This will be a major economic boost to our members in region. Thank you to President Trump and his administration for supporting the dairy industry on this very important issue.”
The USMCA agreement will not only provide for a rebalance in trade, but it will also modernize the trade agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico with this high-standard trade deal. NDFA members will directly benefit as a result of the USMCA with a freer market, more fair trade, and robust economic growth in the dairy foods processing, manufacturing and distribution industry. As a result, NDFA members will see an increase in consumer markets generating greater profits, which will allow for expansions, innovative products, investments in modern technology, and a demand for more jobs.
NDFA has members in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont. Members represent all four federal class product companies including fluid milk processors, distributors, byproduct manufacturers, ice cream and yogurt plants and some dairy farm producers.
