Trophy Nut Company Finds Success in Taiwan

by Food Export | Jul 07, 2016
In May of 2014, Trophy Nut Company, located in Tipp City, Ohio, in the 8th Congressional District, attended the Focused Trade Mission to Taiwan for Retail and Food Service Products. Food Export’s Focused Trade Missions immerse U.S. suppliers into export markets by taking them to markets that show potential for their products to thrive.

The services offered at the Focused Trade Mission to Taiwan included one-on-one meetings with buyers, a chef demo and product showcase, and retail and food service facility tours. During the weekend’s events, Trophy Nut Company made 12 contacts with buyers which resulted in $60,000 of sales. These sales will help Trophy Nut’s exports to Taiwan’s retail market flourish and grow.

Trophy Nut Company is a producer of fruits, nuts and snacks. They have been working with Food Export USA for over 10 years promoting their products in a diverse range of markets from Latin America to Asia.

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.
