Food Export Association of the Midwest USA (Food Export-Midwest) and Food Export USA - Northeast (Food Export-Northeast) are non-profit organizations that promote the export of processed food and agricultural products from the Midwest and Northeast regions of the United States. They were first created as a cooperative effort between Midwestern and Northeastern State Agricultural Promotion Agencies and the USDA, Foreign Agricultural Service.

Food Export-Midwest and Food Export-Northeast, in conjunction with their member states, provide a wide range of services to facilitate trade between local food companies and importers around the world. These services include:

  • Exporter Education Programs - providing on-going education on exporting topics
  • Market Entry Programs - helping companies select and enter the best markets
  • Market Promotion Programs - assisting with international marketing efforts

Food Export-Midwest and Food Export-Northeast are two of four State Regional Trade Groups (SRTGs) that provide export promotion resources. Two additional SRTGs include the Southern US Trade Association and Western US Agricultural Trade Association. The SRTGs administer many programs and services through Market Access Program funding from the USDA, Foreign Agricultural Service.
