Branded Program Increases Exports for New York Supplier

In 2020, Super Sauces Inc. (DBA: Otamot Foods), of Brooklyn, New York participated in the Food Export – Northeast’s Branded Program to increase international exports. The Food Export Branded Program provides 50% cost reimbursement for a wide variety of international marketing activities. This allows companies to increase the effectiveness of their international marketing plans.

According to Andrew Suzuka, CEO of Otamot Foods, “Working with the team at Food Export has opened a world of new opportunities for us - literally. While we only launched in 2019, within our first year our partnership has facilitated export orders to Canada, China, and soon South Korea and Japan. To consider ourselves a global brand is no longer wishful thinking, and to accomplish that within our first 12 month of operations…I can’t be more thankful and excited.”

Super Sauces Inc. (DBA: Otamot Foods) started participating in the Market Access Program (MAP) funded Food Export Branded Program in 2019 and also participates in Buyers Missions, the Food Export Helpline™, webinars, and Export Essentials.

Food Export uses funding from the Market Access Program (MAP) to help America’s small businesses increase their exports of food and agricultural products. As these exports increase, these small businesses are creating jobs and improving the strength and stability of our agricultural economy. Food Export-Midwest and Food Export-Northeast are non-profit organizations that work in collaboration with their member state departments of agriculture and the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service. They offer a wide range of programs and services that help boost America’s agricultural exports.
