Food Export-Midwest

Celebrating 50 years, Food Export Association of the Midwest USA is a non-profit organization that promotes the export of food and agricultural products from the Midwestern region of the United States. We’ve been helping U.S. suppliers of Midwestern food and agricultural products sell overseas since 1969.

Our History

In 1969 our organization was first created as a cooperative effort between 13 Midwestern state agricultural promotion agencies and the United States Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS). See our member states on the - State Agricultural Promotion Agencies page. 

Food Export-Midwest is one of four State Regional Trade Groups (SRTGs) that help companies with export promotion. Three other regional groups, Food Export USA-NortheastSUSTA, and WUSATA provide similar services for companies based or sourcing product from outside of the Food Export-Midwest 13-state region.
