From Monday the 3rd of February until Friday the 7th of February 2020, 2 agricultural commissioners and a deputy commissioner out of the Southern US visited the EU market for a practical training about the market, with the opportunities and challenges for the US export companies.

The mission to the Netherlands and Germany was the second training mission organized by Phaff Export Marketing, commissioned by SUSTA.

The objective of the training mission was giving the agricultural commissioners a good overview of the export markets for SUSTA. Phaff Export Marketing showed them what is happening in the market, what the latest trends are, and what the opportunities and challenges for the SUSTA export companies are.

Part of the program was, for example, visiting a container terminal, visiting a fruit and vegetable importer, visiting the Fruit Logistica trade show.
