Officially, we are called the Western United States Agricultural Trade Association, but we are also known as WUSATA®. Our programs are designed specifically to help agribusinesses based in the Western United States explore, enter and expand into the global marketplace.

We encourage anyone seeking to enter into export marketing to spend some time in our Services section. There we offer comprehensive information about our Generic and Branded Programs, as well as our Export Education opportunities.
To explore various global markets, take a look at our Generic Program. Here is where we do all the legwork by researching and planning buying missions, trade events and activities that target market regions around the world.
Also, check out the Branded Program and qualify to receive up to 50% cost reimbursements on international marketing expenses and FAS-approved domestic trade shows.
The WUSATA® team is proud to have helped thousands of food and agricultural businesses enter into the international marketplace and we look forward to assisting many, many more.
