Growing Exports for Pennsylvania Pet Food Supplier

Since 2012 Annamaet Petfoods, Inc. from Hatfield, Pennsylvania has participated in Food Export-Northeast's Branded Program to increase their export marketing strategies.

Using the 50% cost reimbursement program helped the pet food supplier expand their marketing activities and export sales to new markets while deferring costs of shipping product samples, attending trade shows, conducting in-store sampling events, making label/package modifications, and completing an extensive international advertising plan.

This January the Pennsylvania supplier was able to report earning $591,000 in new export sales to the Czech Republic due to participation in Food Export’s Market Access Program (MAP) funded Branded Program. Annamaet Petfoods also projects to complete $750,000 in sales over the next twelve months. This dog food supplier also gained 10 new foreign buyer contacts and established 2 new distributorships from these promotions.

Annamaet Petfoods, Inc. also participates in Food Export’s Online Product Catalog.

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.
