US, Mexico agree tomato import deal

MARKET RULES:After US growers said they were being unfairly undercut, the proposed new deal would raise the minimum ‘reference’ price of Mexican tomatoes in the US


The four categories, from least to most expensive, are “open field and adapted environment” tomatoes, “controlled environment” tomatoes, “specialty loose” tomatoes and “specialty packed” tomatoes.

The agreement also sets winter and summer references prices for each category.
