New York Company Enters Mexican Market

by Food Export | Feb 22, 2017
Les Trois Petit Cochons, located in Brooklyn, New York, produces award-winning, all natural pâté and charcuterie. They offer a complete line of artisanal pâtés, mousses, terrines, jambon de Paris, sausages, saucissons, smoked meats and other French specialties. In November 2016, Les Trois Petit Cochons attended Food Export’s Focused Trade Mission to Mexico for Private Label, Food Service and Retail Products.

Among others, Les Trois Petit Cochons met with a Mexican Buyer and secured a $35,000 sale. Four months later, their ham is available in stores in Mexico City and they are looking forward to continuing the relationship.

Maha Freij, President, stated, “I really love working with Food Export, their funding has really helped us promote our brand in foreign markets”.

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.
