More than a dozen chefs and restaurants joined California food and agricultural organizations this week in urging Congress to pass the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
In a letter to the California congressional delegation, the coalition said the USMCA would include improvements to help California agriculture trade fairly. The group says fair trade benefits farmers, restaurants and their customers by assuring the availability of high-quality ingredients and affordable dining experiences.
So far the agreement has only been ratified by Mexico.
