ANNAPOLIS, MD – The Maryland Department of Agriculture will host an inbound trade mission of beer, wine, and spirits distributors from the European Union on November 5-6. Participating Maryland companies will have an opportunity to host EU buyers that have been recruited by the Southern U.S. Trade Association (SUSTA). The department is a member of SUSTA, which supports state departments of agriculture throughout the region.
"Maryland's craft beverage industry is booming, and this trade mission will allow our producers to showcase their world-class products to European buyers," said Maryland Agriculture Secretary Joe Bartenfelder. "We are excited to continue our work with SUSTA in opening new international markets for Maryland goods, and I encourage all Maryland brewers, winemakers, and distillers to take advantage this opportunity."
