Agricultural and Food Products
Florida exports over $1.2 billion in agricultural products annually, placing it 14th nationally. With its broad elimination of tariffs, CAFTA is greatly increasing Florida’s agricultural exports when the agreement was fully implemented. Tariffs on virtually all agricultural and food products are being eliminated, being phased-out on a product and country-specific basis. One result has been the greater integration of both the agriculture and food processing industries of the United States and the CAFTA countries.
