Canada Inbound Trade Mission to Summer Fancy Food & Texas



Wednesday June 27 - Friday June 29, 2018

Austin, TX & New York City, New York

U.S agricultural exports to Canada totaled 20.34 billion USD, the highest value of U.S agricultural exports to any single country in 2016. Further, SUSTA region exports to Canada have grown from 1.599 billion USD in 2004 to 3.26 billion USD in 2016. Some of the agricultural exports that have fared the best in the Canadian market are: fresh fruits and vegetables, prepared foods and snacks. Also, the beverage market has seen sensational growth over the last decade. In the summer of 2016, the overseeing food safety entities of both countries entered into an agreement facilitating trade. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) established the Food Safety Systems Recognition Agreement. This agreement recognizes the food safety systems of both countries as comparable to each other and thus reduces technical barriers to trade and generates an even more favorable business climate between the two nations.

This is a great opportunity to explore the Canadian market while attending one of the most popular food trade shows in the world. The Summer Fancy Food Show is a premiere event offering SUSTA registered companies the possibility to come into contact with Canadian buyers from the various regions and have one-on-one meetings with them. Prior to the Summer Fancy Food Trade Show, Canadian buyers will meet with Texas companies in Austin, TX. Register with SUSTA and take advantage of this opportunity!
