Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia present many opportunities for U.S. products along with challenges posed by competition in these markets. Exporters with product access to the EU-27 should give serious consideration to emerging markets in these new member states. The economies of the Baltic States lent themselves to niche markets for U.S. high value products. This region highly regards America and proudly displays their American linkage with a flag or geographic emphasis. The Baltic States' retail and HRI sectors are growing. The region's expanding food processing sector also provides opportunities for U.S. suppliers of a wide variety of raw ingredients. Most popular are U.S. consumer-ready and high-value food products, from grapefruit, cranberries, seafood, wine and spirits, pet food to baking ingredients, almonds, pistachios, sunflower seeds, and protein isolates.
