Vesta Ingredients Expands Exports to Europe

by Food Export | Jan 18, 2017
Founded in 1996 Vesta Ingredients, Inc. of Indianapolis, Indiana was founded with a single uncompromising focus: to deliver the absolute highest-quality nutritional and nutraceutical ingredients for every customer, and at an unsurpassed value. While Vesta has grown into a premier cGMP and FDA registered full-service provider of nutritional supplements and nutraceuticals, they continue to apply their founding values in every facet of their business.

Utilizing Food Export’s program and services has been part of Vesta Ingredients export strategy since 2001. In May of 2015 they utilized Food Export’s Food Show PLUS!™ services while exhibiting at Vitafoods Europe. The Food Show PLUS!™ tradeshow enhancement package helped the Indiana supplier maximize their tradeshow success with introductions to qualified buyers, in-market briefings, on-site assistance, self-guided retail tours and post-show lead qualifications.

This past January Vesta Ingredients was able to report new actual sales of $70,000 that were a direct result of their Food Show PLUS!™ services at Vitafoods. They also project another $750,000 in sales over the next twelve months.

Vesta Ingredients is the premier supplier of nutritional and nutraceutical compounds. The superior quality of Vesta Brand raw ingredients has ensured the success of their clientele. Vesta can supply your needs for raw materials ready for processing, or manufacture your innovative products.

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.
