The right education and preparation will enhance your export readiness and lead to real world results.
Let’s take a look at our 3 basic tools available to get you started on your Export Education.
We often hear from our International Buyers that they love U.S. products and companies, but some of them just aren’t export ready yet. Part of our mission at Food Export – Midwest and Food Export – Northeast is to help change that with our available Export Education resources.
Let’s take a deeper look at what’s available to you with our Online Learning.
Export Essentials – 11 step course
Export Essentials is an online course designed to help small and medium-sized companies understand the process involved in exporting consumer-oriented, value-added food products. If you are considering exporting, have not exported in some time, or are currently exporting and would like to learn about more opportunities, you will find that the modules in this course offer you a helpful and informative path.
While your favorite feature of our educational resources may be that they are FREE, some other benefits are that you can go at your own pace and use the detailed companion guides for each section. Note: A Food Export account is required to access Export Essentials Online. New to Food Export? Follow this link for New User Registration.
