East-West International Benefits from Food Export Services

by Food Export | Jul 11, 2016
In April 2016, East-West International Group, located in Moreland Hills, Ohio, in Ohio’s 14th Congressional District, participated in the Food Show PLUS!™ service offered through the Food Export Association of the Midwest while attending Food & Hotel Asia (FHA).

While there, East-West International Group made eight new buyer contacts, and established three new agent relationships throughout the Southeast Asia market. As a direct result of their experience, East-West International anticipates export sales of approximately $100,000 from buyers in Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

According to Jiunn-Der Wu, President of East-West International Group, “We had not participated in FHA show for many years due to the lack of serious buyers. This year we participated in both FHA and Food Show PLUS! and met so many serious buyers from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, China and Hong Kong. We are in the negotiating process for several orders and anticipate a final outcome soon”.
East-West International is an export management company for a multitude of packaged food and beverage product brands.

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.
