  • Through our Meat and Poultry Processing Expansion Program, @USDA is able to support processing projects at every scale. I visited Crescent Meats in Cadott, WI this afternoon to see how these grants will increase competition and spur economic opportunity.

  • Today, @US_FDA met its obligation to send the Final Food Traceability Rule to the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) by the November 7, 2022 deadline. The rule, mandated by FSMA, is also a cornerstone of FDA’s New Era of Smarter Food Safety. Stay tuned.

@SecVilsack

  • Farmers, ranchers and rural communities bear the brunt of our changing climate. At @USDA, we are committed to providing producers and communities the tools they need to build climate resilience and create more market opportunities.
  • ICYMI: Last week I was in Omaha and Wisconsin to announce $223 million to expand local and regional processing capacity. This is one of many investments the Biden-Harris administration is making to increase competition in the processing industry and lower prices for consumers.

@SecVilsack

  • Last year, @POTUS directed his administration to increase competition in the American economy. At @USDA, we got to work right away expanding local and regional processing capacity. Last week we announced $223 million to do just that.
