Connect and Drive Sales

In 2017, U.S. agricultural exports to Canada totaled nearly US$20.5 billion, a modest increase of 1% but enough to allow it to once again become the top U.S. export destination. Canada accounted for nearly 15% of total U.S. food and agricultural product exports of US$138.4 billion. Canada remains the top market for U.S. exports of consumer-oriented products. U.S. exports of these products reached a US$16.2 billion in 2017, the same as the prior year. That amount is nearly twice that of the #2 consumer food export market Mexico. This also accounted for nearly 80% of total U.S. food and agricultural product exports to Canada. Canada is also the top market for U.S. processed food exports, a decline of 1% but still totaling more than US$12.8 billion in 2017, but more than twice the value of Mexico. 

To help your company capitalize on the potential in Canada, we'll provide Food Show PLUS! services at the SIAL Canada tradeshow, the only food show in Canada dedicated to both the food retail and food service markets.
