Give Your Tradeshow Presence a Competitive Advantage
Covering every aspect of the Canadian food & beverage industry, SIAL Canada provides the perfect platform for US exporters to meet with key Canadian buyers. With 25,000 buyers from the retail, foodservice and manufacturing sectors in 2019, no other food & beverage event is as all-encompassing of the Canadian market.
Trade with Canada is facilitated by unparalleled regulatory cooperation, sophisticated transportation logistics and financial markets, geographic proximity, similar consumer preferences, and relatively affluent consumers. The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) entered into force on July 1, 2020, replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The USMCA will make a good trade relationship even better, ensuring preferential market access for US farm and food products.
U.S. Food & Agricultural Product Imports to Canada, By the Numbers
U.S. Consumer-Oriented Foods - US$17 billion (2020)
U.S. Processed Foods - US$13.1billion (2020)
Despite Canada having relinquished the top market position for overall U.S. exports to China in 2020, Canada remains the top market for U.S. exports of consumer-oriented products and the top market for U.S. processed food exports.
