USAEDC is the leading trade association serving U.S. agriculture in the international marketplace.
USAEDC is an organization whose more than 100 members are national U.S. commodity trade associations, farmer cooperatives and state regional trade groups, representing most producers of food, fiber and seafood.
We work very closely with USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) in developing, expanding and maintaining markets worldwide. USAEDC assists members in their export promotion efforts, specifically those leveraging export promotion programs through the USDA FAS.
USAEDC serves as an information resource for its members on regulatory and legislative issues that may impact their ability to export their products. USAEDC also serves as the positive media voice for export development programs and our cooperator community. We also provide a platform for our members and the USDA to engage on topics related to foreign market development and trade policy.
