SALEM, Ore. — Mexico is one of the United States’ largest and most consistent markets for agricultural exports. In 2019, exports of agricultural and related products to Mexico totaled $20 billion. Furthermore, a foreign trade agreement between the two countries means there are no duties on all agricultural and food products.
To help Western U.S. companies take advantage of the opportunities available in the Mexico market, the Western U.S. Agricultural Trade Association (WUSATA) will be facilitating an outbound trade mission to Mexico City & Monterrey December 6-10, 2021. In addition, several Central American retail buyers will be flown to Mexico City for a two-day conference/meetings between WUSATA companies and buyers of leading retailers from the region. Each WUSATA company will have a tailored business meeting to showcase products to potential buyers. Business meetings will also be combined with networking events and speakers highlighting U.S. trends in the featured product category.
