Say hello to the Food Export interns!
Every year Food Export – Midwest and Food Export – Northeast have a variety of interns that work in our own offices in Chicago and Philadelphia as well as directly with our member states Departments of Agriculture across the Midwest and Northeast.

“After graduation I would like to pursue further education in Graduate school. Adopting a puppy from an animal shelter is also in my life plan after graduation!
Working as an intern at Food Export has been exciting for me. Every day of work is a whole new experience, whether it’s in our office or from my home. Supporting our customers from different industries, learning about international food markets, and celebrating holidays with colleagues. These are all memories and experiences that are special to me!
I want to thank my colleagues and superiors for being supportive, warm, and friendly. I could not be able to enjoy this experience so much without you!”
