New York Supplier Eager to Export

by Food Export | Jul 11, 2016
Terrafina was started in 2005, when in true entrepreneurial spirit; they seized a window of opportunity in the market and unleashed their passion for healthy snacks on Brooklyn New York.

Since then, they have been honing their product range and developing supplier relationships to satisfy a wide range of tastes and healthy snacking needs. From product sourcing to final delivery, they are passionate about ensuring quality throughout the supply chain.

Last year, this New York based supplier of trail mix, dried fruits, candies, and granolas, set their sights on expanding their export business. After participating in seven different Food Export Buyers Missions and Focused Trade Missions during 2015 the supplier has increased their export sales by 10%. This increase has been seen in exports of their snack products China and the United Arab Emirates.

Terrafina has also been a participant of the Branded Program for the past three years, where, after qualifying, they are able to receive almost a 50% cost reimbursement for exhibiting in foreign markets.  As a result, the company started to source more ingredients and used more labor force to fulfill orders.

Now based in Bronx, New York, Terrafina is a producer of an extensive range of natural and USDA certified organic products, from nuts and trail mixes to dried fruits and sweet treats in the wholesale and retail markets.

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.
