Since 2014, DEW- Drink East Well, LLC dba Hilary’s Eat Well has been using Food Export’s Branded Program to exhibit at trade shows and their persistence has started to pay off in a big way.

The upcoming Food Export Branded Program year is starting out successfully. Although new jobs haven’t been added, the company will be expanding to Central and East Canada soon. New positions will be created to the Production department this upcoming year due to Kroger’s picking up nationwide.

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.
