Mexico has long been a top market for U.S. farm and food products – and the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement promises to unlock even greater opportunities for American exporters. Come along and explore those opportunities when the U.S. Department of Agriculture leads a trade mission to Mexico City November 6-8, 2019.

At one time, Mexico was primarily a bulk commodity market, but its growing economy and population are driving demand for high-value, consumer-oriented foods, which now are now the largest category of U.S. agricultural exports to Mexico. 

Currently, our southern neighbor is the #1 export market for U.S. corn, dairy, poultry and eggs, sugar and sweeteners, distillers dried grains, and rice.  It also ranks among the top destinations for an assortment of processed foods and beverages, as well as other key products including soybeans, beef, pork, wheat, and fresh fruits and vegetables. 

Don’t miss this chance to grow your export business by connecting with potential customers and learning the ins and outs of doing business with Mexico.
