Pennsylvania Company Recognizes Sales Potential in International Markets

by Food Export | Jul 11, 2016
In 2015, The Esus Group, Inc., located in West Chester, Pennsylvania, in the 6th Congressional District, attended three Buyers Missions organized by Food Export, one of which was the Private Label Buyers Mission where Esus met with a buyer from South Korea.

From this meeting with the South Korean Buyer, The Esus Group, Inc. expects sales, beginning in September 2016, of chocolate covered almonds and similar products worth $50,000.

According to Fred Theobald, President of The Esus Group, Inc., “The Food Export Association and the Food Export Helpline have been great resources for us.” Fred also stated that the Buyers Missions have allowed them to develop relationships with serious international buyers in numerous markets. These relationships have led to multiple sales opportunities, beyond the South Korean customer, for the upcoming year. 

The Esus Group, Inc. is an export management company that works with U.S. manufacturers and distributors in international markets to efficiently and effectively export their products. The Esus Group, Inc. strives to help these companies expand their markets and increase export sales.
