The Florida Blueberry Growers Association (FBGA) and the Georgia Blueberry Growers Association (GBGA) teamed up to write a letter about the need for modernization of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Blueberries, among other specialty crops, from Florida and Georgia have been facing heavy competition from Mexican imports, making it difficult to keep up with their production. Renegotiation of NAFTA could help ease the increased competition coming from Mexico.
FBGA President Brittany H. Lee and GBGA President Brandon Wade are encouraging their members to send the co-written letter to their Congressman to advocate for the blueberry industry and NAFTA renegotiation.
