Massachusetts Ginseng Supplier Begins Exporting to Poland

by Food Export | Jul 07, 2016
In November 2014, Ginseng Up, located in Worcester, Massachusetts, in the 2nd Congressional District, attended the Convenience Stores Buyers Mission at the 2014 NACS Show where they met with a buyer from Poland, European Union Market.

In April, they shipped their first 40 ft. container of Ginseng Up beverages to Poland and are in the process of shipping a second container to them as well.

According to Gustavo Fayad, “This was a beneficial event for us and we are glad we took part.  We forged a great relationship with a new buyer in Poland and are looking forward to doing business with him in the future.”

Ginseng Up is a producer of specialty beverages in the retail, convenience stores, and wholesale markets. Started in 1981, Ginseng up started crafting a soda packed with premium ginseng. The company has since innovated to offer a full line of all natural sodas and drinks, made without preservatives or high fructose corn syrup.
