The Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) will lead a meat-focused trade mission to Korea and Taiwan, two growing markets. The Korea-USA FTA is creating additional opportunities for U.S. pork. In 2018, Iowa companies exported $133 million in pork products and $72 million in beef products to South Korea. Korea is an important market which will continue to grow with the refinement of the cold chain and expansion of U.S. chilled pork. Taiwan purchased $8.8 million in Iowa pork products and $92 million in Iowa beef products in 2018. IEDA will work with the U.S. Meat Export Federation to organize a meat focused mission. The mission is open to Iowa pork and beef exporters and Iowa agriculture groups.
