The USDA Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) is pleased to announce the North-South Food Link, a Virtual Trade Event (VTE) focusing on natural and healthy food products occurring on October 1, 2020. North-South Food Link will provide a unique opportunity for Brazilian natural/healthy food importers to expand its portfolio of products and develop new network connections. The event will connect one-on-one with U.S. exporters through virtual business-to-business meetings set up in advance by FAS.
 
U.S. products are perceived as high quality, safe, unique, and reliable. Besides, Brazilian consumers are increasingly searching for differentiated products. Along these lines, the North-South Food Link will provide excellent opportunities for Brazilian importers to see the healthy/natural segment's newest product trends.
 
This event is free for Brazilian importers to participate; however, the number of slots is limited. Therefore, if you are interested in being part of this experience, proceed with your registration at https://northsouthfoodlink.online-event.co/registration/north-south-food-link and send an email to alexandre.vendemiatti@fas.usda.gov or atosaopaulo@fas.usda.gov. The registration period remains open until September, 25th.
 
For questions, please send a email to alexandre.vendemiatti@fas.usda.gov or atosaopaulo@fas.usda.gov
