Market Access Program

Market Access Program

Connect with global buyers

Through the federal Market Access Program (MAP), Maine’s food, agricultural, seafood, and beverage companies connect with global buyers to expand and develop their international markets.

Administered through Food Export USA Northeast, MAP reaches virtually every corner of the globe and provides cost-share assistance to eligible Maine companies for activities such as consumer advertising, public relations, point-of-sale demonstrations, participation in trade fairs and exhibits, market research, and technical assistance.

In the last year alone, companies that participated in Food Export programs and activities gained over $978,000,000 in combined export sales to countries around the globe.
