Mangé Secures Export Relations in Canada

by Food Export | Jul 06, 2016
Mangé used the support of Food Export’s Branded Program funding to conduct in-store demos and exhibit at the 2014 Delicious Food Show in Toronto. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and helped to secure relationships with two major Canadian distributors. In June 2015, Mangé finalized the sale of $60,000 of their Fresh Fruit Vinegars for distribution in over 450 retail locations across Canada.

According to Mangé Founder, Chris Spivak, “Food Export really gave me the financial assistance and contact support to make the sale possible.  With help of the marketing aspect of the Branded Program we were able to turn an interested client into a great customer.”

Mangé, based in Somerville, Massachusetts, produces a full line of shelf-stable fresh fruit vinegars for retail and food service industries.

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.
