Foreign Market Developments:


U. S. Food Exhibits -- in ngapore and Hong Kong. U.S. agricultural
exporters will have a unique opportunity to explore the potential for their
food products in two key Asian markets next spring.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), in
cooperation with several U.S. trade associations and industry groups, is
sponsoring American food exhibits in Singapore (April 24-27) and in Hong Kong
(May 1-2, 1984).

Both countries show excellent market potential. Exporters will have an
opportunity to demonstrate and promote their food products to retailers,
wholesalers, the hotel-restaurant and institutional trade and other food
suppliers.

Singapore has become one of the fastest growing markets in the world for food
products--thanks to its role as an entrepot center.

Recent years have seen a rapid rise in Singapore's economy which was
accompanied by an increase in per capital income. These factors, coupled with
demand for quality foods by hotel restaurants, tourists, the shipping and
airline catering industry, and an increasing number of foreign residents, make
Singapore a growth market for quality U.S. processed foods. U.S. exports of
food to Singapore grew from $90 million in 1979 to an estimated $300 million
in 1982. About 75 percent of these products were re-exported to surrounding
countries. Significant imports include fruits and vegetables, grains, cereals
and cereal preparation, coffee, tea, sugar, spices, frozen poultry, dairy
products, meat, meat preparation, processed foods and U.S. breeder swine.

Hong Kong is a free port and the government seldom interferes in the export
trade. Most goods can enter Hong Kong duty-free and tariff-free.
Hong Kong is a large export market for U.S. oranges and grapes. Other U.S.
food items which find a market there include poultry, shell eggs, beef,
catfish, apples, melons, and lettuce. There is also potential for grocery
items as the number of retail food outlets continues to increase. Any food
product normally offered for sale to the U.S. food service industry can be
displayed and demonstrated at the two food shows.

TECHNICAL OFFICE

Notice of Foreign Proposals Concerning Standards in Agriculture. As required
of all signatories to the GATT Standards Code, the following notifications of
foreign proposed standards-related rules have been provided for the









information and comment of interested agencies and firms. The Technical
Office invites inquiries from anyone who believes that any of the proposed
regulations notified under this heading could cause a trade problem. Requests
for copies or questions can be referred to Carolyn Wilson, USDA Technical
Office, Room 5530-S, Washington, D.C. 20250; or phone (202) 382-1327. Anyone
interested in commenting on the proposals should include the TBT Notification
Number in their communication.

Finland TBT Notification 83.220 The Finnish National Board of Trade and
Consumer Interests has proposed an amendment to the Decree on Food Additives
(product covered food additves) listing permissible food additives and where
applicable, restrictions on their use in various food products. The objective
and rationale for the proposal is human health. Final date for comments is
March 31, 1984.

Finland TBT Notification 83.221 The Finnish National Board of Trade and
Consumer Interests has proposed an amendment to the Decree on Food Additives
(product covered food additives) which would specify approval procedure and
give further guidelines for their use and labelling. The objective and
rationale for the proposal is human health. Final date for comments in March
31, 1984.

Finland TBT Notification 83.222 The Finnish National Board of Trade and
Consumer Interests has proposed an amendment to directives (product covered -
food additives) concerning food additives by authorizing the Board to give
numerical identifiers for food additives and by laying down further labelling
requirements. The objective and rationale for the proposal is human health.
Final date for comments is March 31, 1984.

Finland TBT Notification 83.223 The Finnish National Board of Trade and
Consumer Interests has proposed regulation (product covered food additives)
concerning the purity and quality of food additives and refers to FAO and WHO
requirements, if any. The proposal would limit the amount allowed in food
additives of the following: arsine to 5 MG/KG, lead to 5 MG/KG and of heavy
metals together to 30 MG/KG. The supplier of food additives has to give
written reports of the additives. The proposal specifies requirements for
some thirty additives. Objective and rationale for the proposal is human
health. Final date for comments is March 31, 1984.

Spain TBT Notification 83.228 Spain has proposed an adjustment to existing
legislation (product covered packaged foodstuffs) on the labelling,
presentation and advertising of packaged foodstuffs to current requirements -
for better consumer information and greater transparency in the domestic
market for foodstuffs. Objective and rationale for the proposal is to adjust
the existing general standard, established in 1975, to current requirements.
Final date for comments is not stated.

United Kingdom TBT Notification 83.230 The British Ministry of
Agriculture, Fisheries and Food has proposed an amendment to the compositional
regulations (product covered cheese) for cheese. The proposal would permit
the use of enzymes other than traditional rennet in cheese coagulation, permit
the use of enzymes to accelerate the ripening of processed cheese and permit
lipases from animal sources for flavour production in Feta, Provolone, Romano
and Pecorino. Additional acids will be permitted in processed cheese, and
those acids so permitted will also be authorized for use in soft cheese.









There also are changes to the list of colors permitted in cheese. The
objective and rationale for the proposal is advances in technology. Final
date for comments is January 17, 1984.
United Kingdom TBT Notification 83.233 The British Ministry of Agriculture
Fisheries and Food has made a proposal for whiskey regulations (product
covered whiskey) which would transfer the definition of whisky and whiskey
from schedule 7 of the Finance Act 1969, to legislation under the Food and
Drugs Act 1955,; and would lay down definitions for Scotch Whisky, Irish
Whiskey and blended whiskies. The proposal would also preclude the sale of
Scotch Whisky at strengths below 40 percent alcohol by volume. The objective
and rationale for the proposal is to protect the standard of Scotch Whisky and
to bring all the whisky definitions under the umbrella of Food and Drugs
Legislation. Final date for comments is December 31, 1983.

European Economic Community TBT Notification 83.234 The Commission of the
European Communities has proposed a Council Directive (product covered -
foodstuffs) on the approximation of the laws of the member states on
extraction solvents used in the production of foodstuffs and food
ingredients. The proposal for the Directive lists solvents that may be
authorized for use in foodstuffs. These solvents fall into two categories -
those for which the safety evaluation has shown no indication of harm to
health and those solvents which in the opinion of the Scientific Committee for
Food require further testing before they could become completely acceptable.
The objective and rationale for the proposal is consumer protection. Final
date for comments in February 6, 1984.



The Southern United States Trade Association (SUSTA), continues its campaign
to recruit food/agricultural product companies that have an interest in
selling in the markets of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Japan. As a part of

CONTACTS FOR U.S. FARM PRODUCTS
A FREE EXPORT PROMOTION TOOL

The tradeletter, CONTACTS for U.S. Farm Products, is an export promotion
service offered FREE by the Foreign Agricultural Service to help American
companies introduce agricultural products to foreign markets. The CONTACTS
provides names and addresses of U.S. suppliers and a brief description of the
agricultural products they offer to potential foreign buyers.

CONTACTS is designed to help publicize the availability of U.S. agricultural
products and services in foreign markets. The CONTACTS tradeletter will allow
a U.S. supplier to advertise their product or service in a free 100 word or
less trade announcement. The newsletter is transmitted overseas monthly to
our Agricultural Officers where they distribute it to agricultural importers.
In addition, the newsletter is translated into Japanese, Spanish, French,
Italian, and Greek.
If you would like to participate in this program contact the marketing
representative with your State Department of Agriculture, or call (202)
447-7103 for further information on how to participate in the CONTACTS
program. While preference for participation in this program is given to
new-to-market products and new-to-export firms, all firms are invited to
participate.
