The United States has a huge market for foreign food products

The challenge is identifying the best distribution channel and adjusting the product to market requirements

The US market offers huge opportunities and potential for imported, foreign food products.

For example, the sales of Italian food products in the United States reached nearly $4 billion in 2008.

Besides the numerical value itself, it is important to notice changes in food consumption trends in  the US market.

Over the last 10 years, there has been a strong trend towards less tainted and processed and more natural and organic food. This is a great opportunity for foreign companies wanting to export food products to the US. As with other developed markets, we must account for an extremely segmented and strongly consumer-oriented distribution model with a strong push towards food marketing. In the United States, as it is with all other convenience goods, marketing is essential to sell food products.

And herein lies the risk for a manufacturer used to dealing with a more homogeneous and less advanced distribution.
