History

Over Four Decades of Export Assistance

SUSTA was formed in 1973 by the 15 Southern State Departments of Agriculture, as well as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. For over four decades, we have offered programs and services to assist exporters of high-value food and agricultural products. We are a well-known and trusted presence in the international marketplace, a reputation that was carefully cultivated over time. 

Our Connections

Map of SUSTA, SUSTA, Food Export USA-Northeast, and Food Export Association of the Midwest USA.

SUSTA is one of four non-profit State Regional Trade Groups (SRTG) that promote U.S. food and agricultural exports. The SRTGs were established as a cooperative effort between the State Departments of Agriculture and the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) to facilitate trade between local U.S. food companies and international buyers. 

If you are not headquartered in the SUSTA region, contact the SRTG that works with companies headquartered in your state.
