What are Buyer Alerts?
Distributed free of charge to buyers worldwide, the FAS Buyer Alerts Electronic Newsletter provides information on qualified U.S. suppliers of food, farm, seafood and forest products. This biweekly newsletter enables importers and buyers to browse for new products and suppliers. Each edition provides announcements that include product description, company name, and contact information. After receiving a Buyer Alert, the international buyer may then contact prospective U.S. suppliers directly.

Now available on website - Chinese Buyer Alerts
Most Chinese importers do not speak English, which prevents them from fully utilizing the buyer alert program.  Hence, USDAChina translates every buyer alert newletter from English to Chinese and publishes them on the Chinese version of this website.  This enables Chinese importers to readily browse for new products and suppliers.
