The Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). We provide information to buyers looking for U.S. agricultural genetics, bulk and processed commodities, food, and beverage products. We also gather market intelligence and offer market briefs to help U.S. firms better understand the local market. FAS offers some capacity building and other agricultural technical assistance programs, as well as provides technical expertise in international agricultural policy and trade discussions (i.e. food security, sustainability and climate change).
The FAS Office at the American Embassy in Rome has regional coverage for the following countries: Italy*, Greece, Croatia*, Bosnia-Herzegovina*, Serbia*, Albania, Malta, and San Marino.
