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.

food importers. The domestic and foreign data bases have been under
development for the last three years and are being constantly updated. For a
nominal service charge we can provide you with the names, addresses, telephone

for a wide range of commodities. If you would like more information please
