Agricultural Quality Samples Program

Work with the U.S. Government to promote U.S. commodities in new markets

Participating U.S. exporters obtain agricultural commodity samples, export them, and provide the recipient with guidance on how to use the samples. When a project is finished, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reimburses the participant for the costs of procuring and transporting the samples.

  • Eligibility: U.S. businesses

The Quality Samples Program enables potential customers around the world to discover the quality and benefits of U.S. agricultural products. The program focuses on processors and manufacturers rather than consumers, and projects should benefit an entire industry or commodity rather than a specific company or product. Projects should focus on developing a new market or promoting a new use for the U.S. product.
