Greece

Greece is the seventeenth largest economy in the EU-27 with a population of 10.7 million. Greece imports significantly more food and beverages than it exports and is reliant on imports to meet the demands of Greek consumers for food products.  Greece is strongly receptive to U.S. goods and services.  Pease see below for top five sectors with good sales potential:

Tree Nuts
The United States arethe number one supplier of tree nuts (in value and quantity) to Greece.  Most tree nuts are used as ingredients by the food processing sector (ingredient of most traditional pastries). Almonds are the most important commodity within this category.  Greeks consume more tree nuts than other nationalities.  Additional products with good sales potential include walnuts, pistachios, pecans, and hazelnuts.

Fish and Seafood Products
The excellent reputation and reliability of U.S. lobster and salmon help to boost exports.  Fish consumption is growing as consumers associate fishery products with a modern healthy diet.  Best prospects for U.S. fish and seafood exports are squid, smoked and frozen salmon, lobster, shrimp, crab, catfish, scallops, and pollock.

Soybean Meal
Greece is a net importer of soybean and soybean meal, which represent the main ingredients in animal feed.

Whiskies (Bourbon)
The United States is the third largest supplier to Greece, after the United Kingdom, and Ireland.
