Pereg Gourmet Increases Exports to Canada

by Food Export | Oct 25, 2016
In 2015, Pereg Gourmet Company wanted to increase their presence in the Canadian market so they developed a strong export strategy plan that included Food Export’s Branded Program. The Branded Program, that provides 50% cost reimbursement for a wide variety of international marketing activities, helped the New York supplier grow brand awareness, expand distribution and build sales.

Pereg Gourmet Company increased their presence in the market by attending three Canadian trade shows in Toronto and Vancouver and this helped them meet market distributors. This past February the New York supplier was able to report actual sales to Canada of $25,000 and project $35,000 more in sales over the next twelve months.

Pereg Gourmet Company, established in 1906, is a family business, which encompasses many years of history, expertise, professionalism and know-how that were passed on through the generations as an inheritance from father to son. The company produces a range of healthful side dishes to help prepare a quick & delicious meal. Pereg has been a participant in Food Export’s programs since 2013, and has participated in Market Builder, The Food Export Helpline, Branded Program, Webinars, Food Show Plus!™ and Focused Trade Missions.    PeregGourmet
