Canada is the  largest supplier of sausages to the USA, which accounts for about half of all the import in the United States. At the same time, the European countries occupy 50% of US imports of sausages. The product quality is a key requirement for the procurement of sausages from external sources. Therefore, the supply of quality and cheap varieties of sausage from the CIS may well be accepted by US buyers. Rather substantial export of the Polish sausage to the United States implies on the existing market opportunities for the exporters from the CIS countries because of the similar quality as well as logistic cost of shipment.
