What We Do

FAS’s network of global contacts and long-standing relationships with international groups contribute to the agency’s unique market intelligence capabilities. Our analysts objectively assess foreign market conditions, prepare production forecasts, identify export opportunities, and track changes in policies affecting U.S. agricultural trade.

Through our market development programs and activities, FAS partners with the U.S. agricultural industry to cultivate global sales opportunities for the full spectrum of U.S. farm and food products, from bulk commodities to specialty foods. We also provide credit guarantees to facilitate overseas financing of U.S. export sales.

FAS works to create a global environment that’s conducive to agricultural trade. We partner with other federal agencies, foreign governments, international organizations, and U.S. stakeholders to knock down barriers, negotiate and enforce agreements, and establish international rules and standards that are transparent and predictable.
