When you’re considering entering a foreign market, understanding the lay of the land is critically important before making any kind of major investment. Food Export–Northeast has extensive research that can help suppliers gain insights into how their product may perform in a variety of markets from Taiwan to the Middle East. Food Export’s Market Builder program is customizable and is designed to provide valuable knowledge about a product’s potential in a new international market.
The Market Builder program has two components: Market Scan and Rep Finder. The two offerings look at the market opportunity from multiple perspectives and provide customized research on a specific product’s potential viability.
Market Scan provides in-depth market research for a specific product, including:
Competitive Product Shopping: First-hand information on similar and competing products sold in the market.
Rep Finder provides the opportunity for direct meetings between your company and a select group of targeted importers to better understand the market you’re thinking about entering.
The value of using the Rep Finder service includes access to In-Market Assistance that includes a minimum of three one-on-one appointments (should the market allow) will be arranged with participating companies and targeted importers. An In-Market Representative (IMR) will assist in communication, interpretation, and moderation of meetings, if desired.
The Market Builder program is offered for Canada, the Caribbean, Central America, China, Europe, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, the Middle East, Oceania, South America, Southeast Asia, South Korea, and Taiwan.
