It’s no secret that the international marketplace is more dynamic than ever before! Food Export and the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development are excited to offer two unique opportunities to gain export knowledge and expand
your company’s global reach.
The first is a standalone webinar highlighting two of Michigan’s strongest food, agriculture and forest products export markets, Canada and Mexico. Recent changes implemented by the U.S.-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade agreement bring new opportunities
and subtle challenges for experienced and new exporters alike. Join us to learn more about how to put the USMCA to work for your company!
Then, for the first time ever, in 2022 we will be offering a 6-part webinar series designed specifically for Michigan companies. This series will cover export fundamentals, technical assistance, and market updates for some of Michigan’s top food
and agriculture export markets. Plus, automatically qualify for a free virtual consultation with one of Food Export’s in-market representatives, compliments of MDARD, when you sign up for the full webinar series.
