U.S. Department of Agriculture Deputy Secretary Dr. Jewel Bronaugh (Bro-NAW) arrived Tuesday in London to launch a USDA agribusiness trade mission to the United Kingdom. Bronaugh is joined by a delegation of representatives from U.S. agribusinesses, farm organizations and state departments of agriculture, who are interested in exploring export opportunities in the United Kingdom. Bronaugh says, “The United Kingdom is a valued trading partner whose consumers demand the best quality products at a competitive price,” adding, “I’m excited for mission participants to engage with potential customers for their world-class agricultural products.” In 2021, the United Kingdom imported $1.9 billion of U.S. agricultural products, according to USDA. Trade mission participants engage directly with potential customers, receive in-depth market briefings, and participate in site visits. The USDA-sponsored trade mission to the United Kingdom is one of four international trade missions Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced in March. The United Kingdom trade mission concludes later this week.
