Wisconsin Supplier Still Values Food Export's Focused Trade Missions

by Food Export | Jul 06, 2016
Oskri, located in Lake Mills, Wisconsin, in the 5th Congressional District, made a new export sale of snack bars to Taiwan as a result of their May 2015 participation in Food Export’s Focused Trade Mission to Taiwan for Retail and Food Service Products.

Oskri’s participation in Food Export’s Trade Mission assisted the Wisconsin Supplier in meeting a new Taiwanese buyer. This meeting resulted in snack bar sales of $30,000. This activity also helped Oskri make fifteen new foreign buyer contacts and experience the market first-hand.

This was the seventh Focused Trade Mission for Mr. Fekri Zainoba, President of Oskri Inc., who has participated in Food Export activities since 2000.

Oskri is a supplier and manufacturer of natural fruit products that include snack bars, fruit bar, granolas, crunches and dried fruit. It was founded in 1999 and offers vegetarian, dairy free, and gluten free options through distribution, wholesale and website channels.

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.
