Building Relationships and Growing Sales

by Food Export | Jan 18, 2017
In 2015, Vectra Trading, Inc., located in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, participated in Food Export’s Branded Program, which resulted in the creation of 20 buyer/supplier relationships as well as a sale in January 2015 of bread rolls worth $100,000 to the United Arab Eremites. The rolls were sold to be used in the food service distribution channel, and due to this sale, Vectra Trading Inc.’s increased their sales by at least 20 percent.

When asked to comment on Food Export-USA, Amy Mody, CEO of Vectra Trading, Inc. explained, “The staff are supportive and helpful with questions,” and she also emphasized how well events were facilitated which allowed them to run smoothly. As a result of being a part of the Branded Program and halving their marketing costs, Vectra Trading Inc. participated in a Focused Trade Mission which is also offered by Food Export.  In fact, the initial contact made between the buyer and seller regarding this sale occurred during Food Export’ Focused Trade Mission to the Middle East for Retail and Food Service Products which took place in December of the prior year.  Vectra Trade Inc. was pleased with the results it derived from the Branded Program and additional Food Export programs, and would absolutely recommend them to others.

Vectra Trading, Inc. works with companies to facilitate their exporting sales; they provide services in the areas of shipping, bi-lingual labeling documentation, consolidation, and supplier services as well as provide their Private Label Program.  Vectra Trading, Inc. works with a wide range of companies exporting a variety of foods to numerous markets throughout the world.
