U.S. Products Take Center Stage at Mexico's Largest Food Expo
From popcorn to pears, from salmon to snack chips, U.S. food and beverage products took center stage in Guadalajara May 17-19 at Mexico’s largest annual food industry trade show, Expo ANTAD & Alimentaria Mexico.
FAS Administrator Daniel Whitley was there on the expo’s opening day, supporting the U.S. producers and exporters showcasing their premium products to Mexican buyers at the USA Pavilion. Also on hand representing the best in U.S. food and agriculture were a number of USDA cooperator organizations and state/regional trade group partners.
In 2021, Mexico was the #2 global destination for U.S. food and farm exports with sales surging to a record $25.5 billion. U.S. exports of consumer-oriented products – including fruits and vegetables, dairy products, juices, bakery goods, condiments, and food preparations – also hit an all-time high.
