Minnesota is the 4th Largest Agricultural Exporting State in the Nation!

Minnesota Export Map - smaller versionMinnesota’s agricultural exports brought in a record-high of $8 billion in 2012. Agricultural exports account for more than one-third of the state’s total exports.

Our top export commodities include soybeans, corn, pork and feed – 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, Turkey, and Vietnam are beginning to gain importance for the state’s food and agricultural exporters.
