State Regional Trade Groups

USDA supports four State Regional Trade Groups (SRTGs), which are associations that assist U.S. food exporters through trade fairs and trade missions, support for international marketing campaigns and market analyses, as well as promote export opportunities. All promotional activities carried out by the SRTGs are coordinated by the FAS offices in Washington and abroad.
