Canada

Canada consistently ranks as one of the top importers of U.S. food and agricultural products. In fiscal year 2014, U.S. exports to Canada reached a record $21.7 billion. Major U.S. exports to Canada include fresh fruits and vegetables, prepared foods, and snack foods.

Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Canada and the United States have eliminated all tariffs and quantitative restrictions on agricultural goods and have strengthened scientific ties to eradicate diseases and pests, conduct research and enhance conservation.
