North Dakota Supplier Expands Export Sales

by Food Export | Jul 11, 2016
SK Food International was founded in 1990 and supplies a full line of Premium Quality Ingredients including Identity Preserved: non-GMO and organic grains, seeds, soybeans, pulses, expeller oils and flours/flakes.

In July of 2015, SK Food International attended the Food Ingredients Buyers Mission at the 2015 Institute of Food Technologists Show in Chicago, Illinois. There they met with buyers from Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines. These one-on-one meetings helped the North Dakota supplier report ingredient sales to the Philippines for $25,000 and Vietnam for $10,000.

A Food Export Branded Program participant since the mid-1990s, this supplier of grains, pulses, oils and milled ingredients, has experienced solid export growth over the past 20 years of being in the program.

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.
