Minnesota Company Finds Export Success at Home

by Food Export | Dec 13, 2017
In July 2016, Seven Sundays, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the 5th Congressional District, used Food Export-Midwest Branded Program funds to exhibit at the Summer Fancy Food show in New York. As a result of exhibiting at the show, they met 10 foreign buyers and had actual export sales of $25,000.

According to Hannah Barnstable, Owner, “Attending these trade shows supported by Food Export is invaluable. At each one, we develop many export leads that we otherwise would not have access to, all in one place."

2017 promises to be another strong year for Seven Sundays’ export sales, as the company is pursuing growth in the Canadian market.

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.
