From staff and wire reports
Posted Wednesday, April 25, 2007
Selbyville-based Mountaire Farms signed a trade agreement with Cuba,
Gov. Ruth Ann Minner's office said Monday.
The poultry company went on a trade mission to Cuba in March with
several state officials, including Secretary of Agriculture Michael Scuse.
According to the contract with Alimport, Cuba's purchasing agency for
farm and food products, Mountaire will begin shipping container loads of
chicken to Cuba in May.
Mountaire officials were unavailable for comment. Perdue Farms and Tyson
Foods already export chicken to Cuba from other states.
