Why Berry Compliance Matters?

The Berry Amendment has been critical to maintaining the safety and security of our armed forces by requiring specific fabrics/textiles to be produced in the United States, as well as ensuring the continued operation of certain US production lines, jobs to American factory workers, and safeguarding the U.S. military from dependence on foreign sources for critical items that could lead to supply problems. With respect to textiles and clothing, the Berry Amendment has been critical to the viability of the textile and clothing production base in the United States.
