Trump’s Ag Advisory Committee Against Bringing Back COOL

November 30, 2016

Reports have emerged that President-elect Donald Trump’s plans for his first 100 days may have had COOL (country of origin labeling) included in a potential renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Both the Food Safety News and the Livestock Marketing Association have reported that members of Trump’s official Agriculture Advisory Committee do not want to bring it back.
