CCA Welcomes Canada-Colombia FTA

As the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Act (FTA) comes into effect today, the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) would like to acknowledge the efforts of the Government of Canada in achieving this important trade agreement for Canadian beef and offal.

Exports are of vital importance to the Canadian cattle industry and every new market access agreement presents new opportunities for producers. The Colombia-Canada FTA will provide duty-free access for up to 5,250 tonnes per year of Canadian beef and offal. Canadian beef exports to Colombia annually could exceed $20 million under the agreement.
