Seminar - Exporting Food Products to Mexico Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan Trade & Export Partnership (STEP) is hosting a seminar to launch the “Mexico Export Food & Agricultural Product Guide.” Funding for the seminar and guide is provided by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture (SMA) and the Canadian Agricultural Partnership. The event will feature a keynote presentation from Kim O’Neil, former Agri-Food Counselor in Mexico with additional presentations from the Trade Commissioner Service (Market Access), STEP, SMA, and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC).

With the implementation of the new CPTPP, Mexico now offers competitive advantage for Saskatchewan exporters. Presentations will focus on market opportunities in Mexico for Saskatchewan exporters in the agri-value, agriculture and food industries. Topics explored will include an overview of the “Mexico Export Food & Agricultural Product Guide”, the agriculture and agri-value industry, market opportunities for Saskatchewan exporters in Mexico, customs and logistics challenges, market access and import regulations and provincial & federal resources for exporter success. The seminar will also include export success stories and insight into Mexican culture.
