USDA’s Agricultural Trade Office (ATO) in Seoul reports that the U.S. is the leading exporter of agricultural products to Korea with a 24% market share. Consumer-oriented American products continue to lead the expansion of the export market in Korea, which reflect Korean consumers’ increased demand for better value, quality, and diversity. The Korea-United States Free Trade Agreement, (KORUS) implemented in 2012, coupled with the on-going evolvement of the Korean food market, should generate greater export opportunities for American products in Korea in the coming years.
U.S. Food & Agricultural Product Imports to South Korea, By the Numbers
U.S. Consumer-Oriented Foods – US$4.7 billion (2019)
U.S. Processed Foods – US$2.9 billion (2019)
