U.S. exports of consumer food products to the GCC-6 members increased 3% to nearly US$1.7 billion in 2017. This partner group is a solid importer of U.S. processed foods, totaling US$1.1 billion, a decline of 2% from the prior year. The UAE and Saudi Arabia are now the 14th and 19th largest markets respectively from the U.S. for consumer foods and are frequently in the top 10 of most major processed food export categories. Their import share is well over 75% of the regions total, although food products may be transiting through the Emirates into other GCC and/or Middle Eastern markets.

Food Export-Northeast is sponsoring additional buyers from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar for this mission.
