Leverage the expertise of Food Export’s In-Market Representatives

Virtual Consultations are a 30 minute one-on-one video consultation with one of our In-Market Representatives. These sessions are meant to help you explore questions related to export plans and market expansion. During your session you will have the opportunity to receive answers to pre-determined market-specific questions. Our in-market experts will do their best to answer your questions and deliver valuable feedback to help you achieve export success.

Suppliers can select up to four (4) questions to ask the In-Market Representative. Questions will be submitted in advance of the one-on-one video consultation and follow-up assistance may be permitted. From the date of registration, we will set a 10-business-day timeline for initiating the video consultation.

In-Market Representatives will use the information gathered during the registration to begin preliminary research to help answer the supplier’s questions. During the call, our In-Market Representatives will do their best to answer as many questions as they can while giving valuable, real-time feedback.
