The United States and Canada maintain the world’s largest bilateral trading relationship, facilitated by proximity, common culture, language, similar lifestyle pursuits and the ease of travel among citizens for business and pleasure. The Canadian population is approximately 37 million, and 95% of Canadians live within 100 miles of the U.S. border. Moreover, Canada relies heavily on imported produce due to limited growing seasons. The Canadian market relies on the U.S. for increased varieties of seafood, horticulture, alcoholic beverages and value-added products. SUSTA companies with produce, seafood and high value products that cater to various ethnic palates and health conscientious consumers have potential to do well in this market.
SIAL Canada is a major international food show in Canada dedicated to both the retail and foodservice markets. The show is attended by more than 18,000 visitors from 60 countries, including major Canadian retailers and foodservice representatives. SIAL Canada is endorsed and supported by the Foreign Agricultural Service and over the years, SIAL Canada has grown into a premier food exposition with the U.S. pavilion being a prominent feature – participation has proven to be critical to successful market entry. Through this initiative, participants have an opportunity to meet key buyers, familiarize themselves with general import procedures and business practices, explore consumer trends and receive one-on-one assistance to initiate or further their export strategy for the Canadian market. In addition, participating companies will benefit from one-on-one meetings with Canadian buyers and a briefing on the Canadian market.
