Who is Food Export USA - Northeast?
Food Export USA - Northeast is a non-profit organization that promotes the export of food and agricultural products from the northeast region of the United States. The organization has been helping exporters of northeast food and agricultural products sell their products overseas since 1973, when it was first created as a cooperative effort between 10 northeastern state agricultural promotion agencies and the United States Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS). Food Export USA, in conjunction with its member states, provides a wide range of services to facilitate trade between local food companies and importers around the world. These services include: export promotion, customized export assistance, and a cost-share funding program. Additional information about these and other Food Export USA services can be accessed on our Services Page.

The Northeast has a bounty of diverse agriculture including fruits (cranberries, blueberries, wild blueberries, and apples), wine, dairy products, snack foods and maple syrup to name just a few. Host to a large, well developed food processing industry covering all aspects of the food industry, the Northeast is home to a multitude of value-added products ranging from the organic, kosher, specialty/gourmet, foodservice and ethnic market segments.

Food Export USA is one of four State Regional Trade Groups (SRTG's) that assists companies with export promotion. Three other regional groups, SUSTA, WUSATA and Food Export Association of the Midwest USA (formerly MIATCO) provide similar services for companies based or sourcing product from outside of the Food Export USA 10-state region.
