The Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) at the American Embassy in The Hague represents the U.S. Department of Agriculture in the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland.

Working from the U.S. Embassy in The Hague, its mission is to represent the interests of U.S. agriculture and promote the sale of American food and agricultural, fisheries and forestry products.

These responsibilities are principally accomplished via reporting commodity and trade developments, coordinating policy issues with host government officials and promoting the sale of U.S. food, agricultural, forestry and fishery products. We provide trade services for local importing companies seeking U.S. products and U.S. companies wishing to develop markets in our region of responsibility.
