North Dakota Supplier Does Big Export Business

by Food Export | Jul 08, 2016
Healthy Oilseeds, LLC, of Carrington, North Dakota produces both organic and non-organic golden and brown flax, borage, and malting barley. With export sales of $2.8 million in 2014, the company exports to T-TIP partners Poland, Spain, and the UK.

Exports make up 80 percent of the company’s total sales and directly support 8 of the company’s 10 employees. Healthy Oilseeds, LLC could benefit from the reduction of tariffs on its products and streamlined regulations as a result of TPP and T-TIP.

A Food Export participant in the Branded Program since 2010, this North Dakota supplier is a licensed and bonded grain buyer that contracts with North Dakota farmers to grow both flax and borage. The first product they exported was borage to a small company in Spain.


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.
