EXPO ANTAD & Alimentaria 2021 is Mexico's and Latin America's largest food and supermarket show. Mexico continues to be one of the largest and fastest growing markets for U.S. agricultural products. With the geographical advantage of a long land border and an FTA that has virtually eliminated duties on all agricultural and food products, Mexico is a natural market for U.S. exporters.
In 2018, Mexico passed China to once again become the 2nd largest market for U.S. agricultural products from the U.S. With the geographical advantage of a long land border and a Free Trade Agreement that has eliminated duties on all agricultural and food products, Mexico is a natural market for U.S. exporters.
Additionally, Mexican consumers recognize U.S. brands and labels and associate them with high, consistent quality and value. Most international tourists visiting Mexico are North Americans and, to a large degree, like to consume products they are used to buying at home. Major retailers are developing increasingly sophisticated distribution systems, which will provide more space and better cold chain technology for high value imports. Greater knowledge about organic products is opening new product opportunities at the retail level; likewise, increased awareness of obesity issues is creating greater demand for healthy products.
