Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator of the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) today accepted and began a review of a petition for trade adjustment assistance filed under the FY 2011 Program by 100% Puerto Rico Coffee Export Board, Inc. on behalf of coffee producers in Puerto Rico. The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether increasing imports of coffee contributed importantly to a greater than 15-percent decrease in the average annual price, production quantity, or production value of coffee compared to the average of the 3 preceding marketing years. If the determination is affirmative, producers who produce and market coffee in Puerto Rico will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for free technical assistance and cash benefits.Start Further Info
