Lithuania

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 fish and seafood, almonds, pistachios, wine,  spirits, beef, pet food to baking ingredients, and protein isolates.

The Best High-Value Products Prospects:

 Fish and Seafood: salmon, lobster and other miscellaneous fish products

 Nuts: almonds, peanuts, pecans, pistachios, walnuts

 Wine

 Distilled Spirits

 Highly processed ingredients: protein concentrates dextrin, peptones, enzymes, lecithin

 Dried & Processed Fruit: cranberries, prunes

 Fruit juice concentrates: Cranberry, prune Organic products

Products not present in significant quantities, but which have good sales potential

 High quality spices and mixes (tex-mex)

 Beef: Hormone-free beef

 Dairy products (whey)

 Vegetable fats for bakery industry

Products not present because they face significant boundaries
