The USDA/FAS sponsored buyer delegation is reporting that attendance at the NRA and SSE trade shows resulted in over $75,000 in immediate, on the spot sales; and $1.2 million in new U.S. food product sales over the next 12-months. The Indian delegation met with over 120 U.S. exhibitors in more than 150 business-to-business meetings facilitated by FAS New Delhi staff.
