In 2020 Westport, Connecticut based Provisionaire & Co. LLC dba Field Trip utilized Food Export – Northeast’s Branded Program to increase the awareness of their chickpea butter products in international markets.

Using their allocated funds to complete in-store sampling events and shipping samples to prospective buyers helped the Connecticut Supplier gain $11,000 in sales to Israel as a first-time sale to the market for Provisionaire & Co. The company also gained 1 new foreign buyer contact, 1 new agent relationship while also projecting to complete $25,000 more in sales over the next twelve months.

Provisionaire & Co. LLC dba Field Trip was formed in 2010 and is gaining new market shares with their healthy, protein-rich snacks. “Field Trip is a healthy lifestyle brand aimed at providing delicious and versatile snacks that complement a large variety of on-the-go consumers.” Their products are continuing to gain popularity and now they are expanding into new international markets with the help of Food Export’s Branded Program.
