BobbySue's Nuts are Gracious for the Continued Support of Food Export

by Food Export | Jul 31, 2017
Within the past few years, BobbySue’s Nuts, located in Chappaqua, NY (the 17th Congressional District), has participated in Food Export’s Branded Program where they gained knowledge to help understand and prepare for exporting. Through the Market Access Program (MAP) funded Branded Program, they have developed relationships with two distributors in Canada which they send product to regularly as well as an affiliation with a large purchaser in Asia. In 2016, they had a 400% increase in sales outside of the U.S. and hope to at least double that number again by the end of 2017.

According to Adam Kobren, President, “From day one, we have been impressed with the knowledge, professionalism and desire to help that the entire team at Food Export has shown to us.” As a result, Food Export has been a major supporter of the company and has helped answer questions and suggest ideas on how they can improve their exporting relationships. BobbySue’s Nuts are looking forward to working with Food Export as the company continues to grow. 
 BobbySue’s Nuts is a producer of several different flavored nut mixtures in the dried fruits and edible nuts industry. With a mission to have a portion of every nut sale go towards helping homeless animals, BobbySue’s Nuts has humane, Non-GMO, and earth-conscious practices including using egg whites from cage-free chickens while remaining delicious.

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.
