Specialty Food & Beverage Outbound to Canada
Toronto & Vancouver, Canada
June 25 – 30, 2023
Canada was the third largest export market for U.S. food and agricultural exports in 2021, importing $25 Billion of U.S. high-value, consumer-oriented goods. Unparalleled regulatory cooperation, comparability and trustworthiness in food safety systems, sophisticated transportation logistics and financial markets, geographic proximity, similar consumer preferences, and relatively affluent consumers are among the reasons why Canada continues to offer excellent export opportunities for new-to-export small- and medium-sized U.S. companies.
Buyers will spend two full days in each city in Canada. WUSATA participants will have tailored business meetings to showcase products to potential buyers in the specialty food and beverage sector.
