Key Buyer Relationships Made In India and Philippines

by Food Export | Oct 17, 2016
In June 2016, SB Global Foods, Inc., located in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania, in the 8th Congressional District, attended the Sweets and Snacks Buyers Mission where they made a pivotal face to face connection with buyers from India and the Philippines.

They expect that these leads will result in sales of candy products worth an estimated $250,000 between the two areas.

According to Karl Brown, CEO of SB Global Foods, Inc., “Due to our company’s disproportionate concentration on exporting in our business model, the programs offered by Food Export both, Branded and general services, have been invaluable over the past 25 years.” As a result of attending the Sweets and Snack Buyers Mission, the company was able to fill an empty spot on their exporting map. The company had tried before to get in contact with the buyer from the Philippines, but this Buyers Mission was the key that allowed for an actual buyer and importer relationship to be made.  Pleased with this connection and opportunity for expansion, SB Global Foods, Inc. would recommend Food Export services to others.

SB Global Inc.’s primary role is to act on behalf of U.S. confection, snack and grocery manufacturers to sell their products or to represent them as the companies’ sales/marketing agent.  SB Global Foods, Inc. has built a large network of exporting partners in over 70 countries since their establishment in 1991, and has been recognized as the two time winner of the Pennsylvania Governor’s Export Excellence Award.   Through the new connections made at the Sweets and Snacks Buyers’ Mission, SB Global Foods, Inc. will continue to connect U.S. food manufacturers to buyers all over the world.

Food Export uses funding from the Market Access Program (MAP) to help America’s small businesses increase their exports of food and agricultural products.

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.
