Trump, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, and
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in November
2018. It greatly affects the dairy, egg and poultry markets,
among others.
The ratification process has been affected by growing objections within member states about U.S. trade
policy and various aspects of the USMCA. Currently, the
agreement is awaiting a vote in the U.S. House of
Representatives.
Sarasin said in her remarks, "Thanks in part to
our expanded trade with Mexico and Canada, our
U.S. produce departments have been transformed
over the past 30 years. FMI members are now
able to offer safe, high quality and affordable
fruits and vegetables year-round and not just
during the limited U.S. growing seasons. U.S. grocery shoppers can wander the produce section in
January and find groceries that allow them to eat
like it's a June day. This transformation has taken
place at the same time as new markets have
opened and expanded for U.S. growers; so much
so, that the United States food and agriculture
economy now supports more than 45 million
jobs and $152 billion in exports every year."
Sarasin expressed pride in joining industry
groups to support U.S. jobs and enable food
retailers to keep feeding families and enriching
the lives of American consumers. She said, "The
[U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement] maintains
and secures the existing supply chain, resulting
in continued growth in U.S. food and beverage
exports and strengthens our food safety efforts."

the CBD market is currently the wild west," says Geoff
Freeman, president and chief executive officer of the
GMA. "Without a uniform federal regulatory framework
in place, consumers lack the basic information they need
to make informed decisions about CBD GMA will build a
broad-based coalition to lead an aggressive campaign to
protect consumers by advancing regulatory clarity."

A Fresh
Alternative
FOR PERIMETER PACKAGING
Supermarkets are in a unique position to support shoppers
seeking fast, fresh and healthy meal options by promoting their top
selling produce and prepared foods in healthy meal solutions that
require little to no prep and clean-up time.
We've created the perfect blend of art, science and technology to create flexible
packaging solutions that meet shopper demands for convenience and healthy foods.

A welcoming change for fresh prepared foods
The Hot N Handy® Rotisserie Pouch was the
first welcomed change by the supermarket
industry for its ease of use, leak-resistance
and added conveniences provided to the
consumer. Retailers can expand their
grab-n-go line to now hold rotisserie and fried
foods at the hot, cold or service counter.

GMA calls for federal CBD regulation
The Grocery Manufacturers Association is campaigning for federal regulation and oversight in
the cannabidiol (CBD) market. While sales of CBD
products are expected to more than double in
the years ahead, hitting $6 billion by 2025, new
research from the trade association suggests
consumers still aren't sure what CBD is, what it
does or whether it is safe.
One in three Americans use CBD. Most of
them believe it is subject to federal regulations
and safety oversight, according to GMA research.
Upon learning that the industry operates within
a state-by-state patchwork system of regulations,
82% of consumers expressed alarm, and more
than two thirds said they are "extremely" or "very"
concerned. Another 84% said they are worried
about the varying regulations that could result
from the current patchwork system.
"It is the role of federal agencies to ensure a
safe and transparent consumer marketplace - but

Value-added offering for produce
TC Transcontinental's strength for bringing
ready-to-eat meal solutions to the supermarket
perimeter has penetrated the produce department.
The Steam N Eat® Produce Pouch allows retailers to
offer consumers fresh-cut produce packaged in-store with a
value-added steamable feature. Consumers can take advantage of the
grab-n-go convenience, as well as enjoying a healthy alternative that is
simple and easy to prepare using the convenience of their microwave.
