USDA Outbound Trade Mission to United Kingdom

Sep 14 - 17, 2020
United Kingdom
Outbound Mission

SUSTA is partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture on a trade mission to the United Kingdom in September 2020. Participants will engage in personalized business-to-business meetings arranged by local staff from USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service. U.S. government and industry trade experts will guide you through in-depth briefings and site visits where you will gain an understanding of the intricacies of the market.

The UK, a leading trading power and financial center, is the third largest economy in Europe, after Germany and France, and has one of the highest income levels in the world. The UK has strong social and cultural ties to the United States, demonstrated by the similarities in consumer trends in the retail and food-service markets. The UK presents strong market opportunities for many U.S. consumer-orientated products, including specialty food products, “healthy” food items, wine, sauces, fruit, nuts, and juices. “Health” and convenience foods are the main driving forces in the UK value-added food and beverage market. Consumers in this country are looking for variety in high quality food products, especially those perceived to have health benefits.

SUSTA has five spots available for this trade mission. Participation is contingent upon USDA review.

Participation Fee: $400*

Fee Includes:

  • Reimbursement of airfare OR lodging within the Federal per diem rate for one company representative with submittal of required supporting documentation
