International Buying Missions

Food Export, in conjunction with AFFI, will conduct a Frozen Food Buyers Mission at AFFI-CON 2023. This is the perfect opportunity for suppliers of product with at least 50 percent U.S. agricultural origin to meet qualified buyers from around the world.  These buyers of frozen food represent retailers, wholesalers, distributors and foodservice. 

For more information, please contact Food Export USA Program Assistant Teresa Miller at tmiller@foodexport.org.

 We invite you to watch highlights from one of our most popular 2019 sessions about how to properly handle a recall.
