LONDON, United Kingdom, June 21, 2022 – U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Deputy Secretary Dr. Jewel Bronaugh arrived today in London to launch a USDA agribusiness trade mission to the United Kingdom. Deputy Secretary Bronaugh is joined by a delegation of representatives from U.S. agribusinesses, farm organizations and state departments of agriculture who are interested in exploring export opportunities in this important market.

“I am honored to lead this diverse group of U.S. agribusinesses and representatives to the United Kingdom,” Dr. Bronaugh said. “The United Kingdom is a valued trading partner whose consumers demand the best quality products at a competitive price. I’m excited for mission participants to engage with potential customers for their world-class agricultural products. In 2021, the United Kingdom imported $1.9 billion of U.S. agricultural products and I’m confident this visit will help us continue to exceed expectations and meet the needs of UK consumers for years to come.”

Trade mission participants will engage directly with potential customers, receive in-depth market briefings, and participate in site visits.

Deputy Secretary Bronaugh will hold a media teleconference from London on June 24, at 12 p.m. ET.
