Canada: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

In 2015, Canada regained the position as the top destination by value for U.S. agricultural exports; a total of $21 billion. As global exports declined last year, the Canadian market remained resilient with a minimal slowdown in U.S. exports of -4.2% compared to the double-digit percent slowdown experienced in other leading foreign export markets. More importantly, of the total U.S. exports to Canada, $16.5 billion is made up of high-value products, double the amount exported to the second leading market, Mexico, and equal to the combined Asian markets of Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, China and Taiwan. There are over 94,000 food service units in Canada and 18 million visits by Canadians daily to restaurants. For those U.S. food firms with unique and competitively priced products, the food service sector offers promising export opportunities.
