    Yes, I know where he lives. Also, I'm not talking about just what he eats, but what is sold in Switzerland. I haven't studied this kind of stuff in a while now, but I used to and Switzerland definitely did import food products from the US. Hard to believe that's come to a screeching halt.

    Now, that doesn't meant they import as much as others, population by itself is a large factor. But there are certain food products like soybeans, walnuts, and almonds where the US is the place to get them if you have a good trade agreement with them, so that's just where you get them. But I'd put a large bet down that more than just that is currently imported to Switzerland.

    I think you're both right. We don't import maybe so much food from US, but we do more than I've noticed. Not meat I think - in the shop it has to be labeled with a place of origin. It's usually Switzerland. Could easily be soy and wheat or indeed almonds.
