U.S. Department of Agriculture: trade mission to Toronto and Montreal
September 3 - September 6
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will sponsor a trade mission to Toronto and Montreal, Sept. 3-6, 2019, providing U.S. agricultural exporters a prime opportunity to grow their business with our Northern neighbor and top agricultural trading partner.
As the number one export destination for U.S. farm and food products, Canada is an indispensable market and a valuable proving ground for companies looking to enter or expand in the global marketplace. With 90 percent of Canadians living within 100 miles of the United States, consumers there closely follow U.S. food trends and often share tastes and preferences with their U.S. counterparts.
Last year, the United States was the top supplier of agricultural products to Canada, with a 58-percent share of the country’s agricultural import market. More than 75 percent of U.S. exports were high-value, consumer-oriented products, including prepared foods, fresh vegetables and fruits, snack foods and non-alcoholic beverages.
Join this USDA trade mission and discover all the possibilities – from Canadian food retail chains that can help new products reach national distribution, to specialty and regional retailers that can serve as great entry points for new-to-market companies.
