Get connected with Canada. Join the Western U.S. Agricultural Trade Association (WUSATA) and the 13 Western State Departments of Agriculture for an Inbound Produce Trade Mission June 5-9.
The trade mission is an opportunity to take advantage of Canada's robust free trade agreement with the U.S. to develop or expand your exports to the market. Demand for organic food is expected to grow 20 percent in the next 15 years and Canada's growing immigrant population is creating demand for produce. Canada consistently ranks as a top importer of U.S. produce.
Suitable products include, but are not limited to: fresh produce and dried fruit. A wide variety of products are needed, including all fruits, vegetables, herbs, specialty and ethnic produce. There is a high degree of interest in certified organic products. Participation is complimentary. The registration deadline is May 26, 2017.
