Netherlands - April 2023
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service is accepting applications from U.S. exporters for its first-ever regional agricultural trade mission to Amsterdam, Netherlands, April 17 – 20, 2023.
“Agribusiness producers, exporters, and growers in the United States may find the Netherlands to be a perfect gateway to Europe,” said FAS Administrator Daniel B. Whitley. “Participants will explore exporting opportunities in this mature market, which continues to grow, and meet potential buyers in surrounding regional markets.”
Participants will conduct business-to-business meetings with potential buyers, receive market briefings from FAS and trade experts, and participate in site visits and other networking activities while in the Netherlands. During the trade mission, U.S. participants will meet with buyers from the Netherlands, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and neighboring Belgium and Germany.
For U.S. companies interested in expanding sales in the Netherlands and these regional markets, strong export opportunities include, but are not limited to:
- fats and vegetable oils;
- planting seeds;
- forestry products;
- beef (non-hormone treated cattle);
- dairy products;
- tree nuts;
- fish and seafood;
- food preparations;
- pet food;
- non-alcoholic beverages;
- spirits, wine and beer;
- confectionery; and
- condiments and sauces.
Additionally, there are increasing opportunities for U.S. products with special certifications, such as organic, and for products with unique stories to tell about their provenance or origin.
