LAS CRUCES – The New Mexico Department of Agriculture will host a series of virtual export training seminars for the benefit of agricultural producers throughout the state. The first of these seminars is Thursday, April 8 at 10 a.m. MT and will feature presentations from the Western United States Agricultural Trade Association, Imalinx and Ottawa’s agriculture attaché. These representatives will help producers set their sights on exporting products to Canada, as well as Latin American countries.
The seminars are designed to educate New Mexico agriculture and food companies about the opportunities in foreign markets and will consist of presentations covering a wide range of topics, including:
- Market assessments.
- Technical and logistical information.
- Insight and export strategies.
- Available resources.
Presenters for the April 8 seminar will include in-country trade consultants, United State Department of Agriculture–Foreign Agricultural Service representatives, and logistic and banking representatives.
“New Mexico produces agricultural products that are popular not only here, but across the world,” said New Mexico Secretary of Agriculture Jeff Witte. “The export training events serve to showcase opportunities that help our small and medium companies succeed in the export market. These seminars will cover many tools and trade assistance programs that are available to New Mexico food and agriculture companies.”
