The Largest Foodservice Marketplace in the Western Hemisphere

NASDA’s American Food Fair joins the National Restaurant Association Show in providing U.S. food and beverage companies the opportunity to engage with thousands of buyers in the restaurant, lodging and foodservice industry. The Show successfully combines an impressive collection of unique food and beverage products, cutting edge technology and equipment with the latest in restaurant and lodging trends.

NASDA collaborates with USDA Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), and its network of international offices to recruit qualified, international buyers from all over the world. Buyers are interested in an array of food and beverage products, including bakery goods, candy and confectionery, dairy products, meat, poultry, ingredients, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, seafood, and snack foods, and represent diverse markets including foodservice, distributors, export agencies, manufactures, retailers, and service providers.

In partnership with FAS, NASDA launched the American Food Fair to give small-and-medium-sized U.S. food and beverage exporters the advantage of exhibiting in the premier foodservice event in the Western Hemisphere. Through this partnership, NASDA focuses on helping small and medium U.S. food and beverage companies get their products into international markets.

Strategic Partnerships

Through sponsorship of the American Food Fair, the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) and the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) focus on increasing U.S. food and beverage exports. They strive to create a reasonably priced trade environment for small- and medium-sized companies interested in entering foodservice and export markets or expanding their existing business.

NASDA grows and enhances agriculture by forging partnerships and creating consensus to achieve sound policy outcomes between state departments of agriculture, the federal government, and stakeholders. NASDA supports and promotes American agriculture through a variety of programs, including sponsorship of the AFF Pavilion at the National Restaurant Association’s trade show.

The USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) will send staff from selected offices around the world. They will function as buyer delegation leaders and will be available to answer questions and facilitate interaction between their buyers and exhibitors.
