Still Time for American Wellness Manufacturers to Join Trade Mission to Mexico This Fall

High-value, consumer-oriented foods are now the largest category of U.S. agricultural exports to Mexico, according to a recent U.S. Department of Agriculture news release, and American wellness brands can get an up-close look this fall on a USDA-led trade mission to Mexico City Nov. 6-8.

The application deadline for the trade mission has been extended to this Friday, Aug. 23. Applications are available here.

Grovara already works with two of the top three retailers in Mexico — Oxxo and Walmart. The new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which includes digital trade and anti-corruption provisions and increased focus on smaller businesses, is expected to usher in even bigger export opportunities for American manufacturers.

Currently, our southern neighbor’s growing economy and population has made it the No. 1 export market for U.S. corn, dairy, poultry and eggs, sugar and sweeteners, distillers dried grains, and rice. Mexico is also among the top destinations for U.S.-made processed foods and beverages.
