Canada is a top destination for U.S. agricultural exports. In 2009, U.S. agricultural exports to Canada reached $15.7 billion. Consumer-oriented agricultural products accounted for 76 percent of total U.S. food and agricultural product sales to Canada in 2009 with fresh and processed fruits and vegetables, snack foods, red meats, breakfast cereals, and fruit and vegetable juice products as the category leaders.
