DOVER, Del. (AP) –
A Delaware poultry business has signed an agreement with Cuba to ship
its products there.
Mountaire Farms will begin shipping containers of chicken to the country
The company's president, John Wise, says he worked with Delaware
Agriculture Secretary Michael Scuse. He said it was a challenge that
required negotiating and building relationships with Cuban officials.
He said Cuba is a natural customer since it has 11 (m) million people
Scuse said a March trip to Cuba was very helpful to find other avenues
for exporting Delaware goods to the country. 38 other states export
goods to Cuba.
