Food Fair In Cuba

More than 280 farm and ag companies showcased their products at the first U.S. food fair in Cuba in more than 40 years. The Sept. 26-30 fair was an attempt to recover a food export market that closed after President Fidel Castro's 1959 revolution.

Cargill got one of the largest contracts — more than $17 million for 70,000 tons of corn, soybeans, soybean oil and turkey drumsticks.
