Food Export Buyers Missions are Unique, Curated Experiences that Maximize Your Time and Investment

Food Export-Northeast in partnership with the Southern U.S. Trade Association (SUSTA) will be conducting a Caribbean and Latin American Buyers Mission.

Taking place in Miami, this annual mission is a great opportunity to meet one-on-one with Caribbean and Latin American buyers interested in your products! With limited agricultural production, most Caribbean islands rely heavily on imported food products, particularly from the United States. As tourist arrivals in most islands continue to improve, prospects for further market expansion are always present. Caribbean importers have a long history of doing business with the United States. Their strong interest in U.S. suppliers and products is mainly due to close proximity, long-standing reputation of high-quality products, and superior quality of service.

Register early as meeting slots are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
