Switzerland

The Swiss agricultural sector is one of the most highly subsidized and protected in the world. As a result, Swiss food prices are about double those in the United States. Swiss consumers are very health-conscious and demand high-value products. The EU is the primary supplier to Switzerland but U.S. exports reached $466 million in 2015, consisting mostly of tobacco and consumer-oriented products. Tree nuts, dairy products, and beef shipments have grown steadily over the past 5 years. The United States and Switzerland recently signed an organics equivalence agreement which could boost U.S. organic exports.
