We collaborate with industry partners to identify and resolve trade issues. The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) works with appropriate state, federal, and international partners to remove restrictions that impede the movement and sale of Oregon food and agricultural products.

We maintain close working relationships with the following:

  • USDA Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS)
  • Western US Agricultural Trade Association (WUSATA)
  • Market Access Program (MAP) grant program funded by the USDA

  • Statewide export development and investment initiatives
  • Oregon regional economic development organizations
  • Food Innovation Center

Farm to School​

Our Farm to School Program works to connect local farmers, packers, and food processors with school cafeterias in preschools, elementary and secondary schools, and colleges. This enables more Oregon agricultural products to be served in the lunch line and helps connect youth to food production through school gardens, field trips to farms and ranches, and grower visits to the classroom.
