The division's International Marketing section deals primarily with foreign buyers. Our international market development coordinators specialize in assisting both buyers and sellers with information and technical advice when conducting foreign trade. Market development coordinators assist state companies with overcoming trade barriers such as cultural and language differences, governmental trade restrictions and financial limitations. Staff members also work closely with members of the Foreign Agricultural Service and
Southern United States Trade Association (SUSTA). SUSTA helps small companies in the Southern United States promote value-added U.S. food and agricultural products to foreign markets. Through the Market Access Program, the USDA’s Foreign Agriculture Service partners with SUSTA and small businesses to share the costs of overseas marketing and promotional activities that help build commercial export markets for U.S. agricultural products.
