The United States is Denmark’s largest non-European trade partner. U.S. agricultural exports to Denmark were $365.6 million in 2014. The major products imported from the United States include animal feed, fats and oils, fruit and nuts, fish, and wine. Denmark is a rich, modern society with state-of-the-art infrastructure and distribution systems, and a highly skilled labor force.
Trade Show Matchmaking
Each year, FAS The Hague participates in several European trade shows that we think will provide the best exposure and marketing opportunities to U.S. companies and producers in Europe for access to the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Iceland. We are planning on attending one or more of the following trade shows where we will provide matchmaking services, market intelligence, and assistance.
1. Food Ingredients Europe, Frankfurt, November 28-30, 2017 - FAS The Hague will facilitate introductions of Dutch and Nordic buyers to U.S. companies at the show.
