You may not realize how international trade plays a role in your everyday life. You may not give it a second thought. But indulge me for a bit and think about the last time you went to the grocery store. The plethora of choices on any given item may have made your head swirl. This is especially true in the cheese section and for good reason.
There are over a thousand types of cheeses produced all around the world available at your fingertips because of international trade. Most of the current food trends are due to the ease of trade in today’s global market. In fact, two of the largest economies in the world are currently negotiating a trade agreement that would further ease the flow of goods and services across the Atlantic.
