Branded Program Support for SIAL China Exhibit Opens Door to Asia

by Food Export | Jul 06, 2016
Total Health Advanced Nutrition has been exporting its beverage mixes since 2010. While in that time they have focused on the Asian region, it was not until they exhibited at SIAL China in 2013 and 2014 with Branded Program funding that they started to see real traction.

2014 saw their first real sale in China totaling $10,000 and they are now sending their first container load.  In addition to China the SIAL show has led to interest and growth in other countries in the area So much so they are opening an office in China to manage the projects that they are planning for that region; first and foremost chiefly packaging and label modifications for Malaysia which will also be supported by the Branded Program.       

Total Health Advanced Nutrition is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Since 2002 they have been producers of the Lutria line of powered beverage mixes, including dietary and nutritional supplements, dairy replacers, teas and sports drinks.  

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.
