State Regional Trade Groups
FAS supports four State Regional Trade Groups (SRTGs), which in turn assist U.S. companies with creating and expanding export markets for value-added food and agricultural products. These non-profit organizations work closely with state Departments of Agriculture and offer services including:
- exporter training and education;
- analysis of export markets and opportunities;
- trade shows and buying missions; and
- support for international marketing campaigns and product promotion activities.
All promotional activities conducted by the SRTGs are coordinated with FAS's Washington and overseas offices and most are funded through the Market Access Program.
