Minnesota’s agricultural exports brought in a $8 billion in 2013, a second record-high. Agricultural exports account for more than one-third of the state’s total exports.
Our top export commodities include soybeans, feed, corn, and pork – but we’re also home to many leading processed food companies, with products ranging from snack foods to frozen entries to bakery products.
Minnesota’s primary export markets are China, Mexico, Japan, Canada, South Korea, and Taiwan. Emerging markets like Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam are beginning to gain importance for the state’s food and agricultural exporters.
