Between January and June 2020 exports of Italian food reached 22.1 billion euros (+3.5% on an annual basis), equal to 11% of total exports of goods and services. The increase in exports of agri-food products is to a greater extent attributable to the food industry which accounts for 84% and which in the first half of 2020 showed an annual increase of 4% and, a little more modest, the result observed for the agricultural sector (+1,1%); moreover, direct exports to non-EU countries in the first half of the same year grew by 4.6% on an annual basis, reaching approximately 7.9 billion euros.
The USA, the third largest outlet market for Italian agri-food products, recorded a more contained increase and exports of fresh vegetables, such as peeled tomatoes and pulps, semolina pasta, bakery products, pastry and biscuits are growing considerably; exports of olive oil are also on the rise.
Exports of Italian food products to Brazil are also growing in, with a value of 103 million euros.

Organic Made in Italy is also successful abroad and the United States is one of the most promising markets. Organic exports recorded very positive performances, even higher than those of agri-food exports.
