Tariffs kill market for US-produced pig feet, heads

China Daily USA | Updated: 2018-08-10 23:54

US pork producers are losing an important market because of the ongoing US-China trade dispute: the market of pork variety meat.

The products, including pork feet, heads, hearts, tongues, and other parts that are rarely seen on the US market are welcomed by Chinese customers, making China the top market for those kinds of meat. However, after China increased tariffs on US pork imports as a retaliation measure to the US tariffs, this market is gone for US producers. They are losing up to $18 per hog because of this, and the whole industry has lost over $2 billion from the beginning of March.
