JM Grain Makes Great Sales in Dubai

by Food Export | Dec 14, 2017
JM Grain, a company that specializes in processing and exporting U.S. grown and graded pulse crops from Garrison, North Dakota works closely with Food Export Association of the Midwest to utilize our programs and services to assist their global exporting efforts.

In February of 2017, the North Dakota company took advantage of Food Export’s Food Show PLUS!™ services at Gulfood in Dubai, U.A.E. At the event where Food Export assisted in facilitating meetings with buyers at the company’s booth, JM Grain was able to secure new sales of $156,000. JM Grain also commented, “We very much appreciate the ability to tailor the Food Show PLUS! program to best suit our company in its export efforts.”

JM Grain prides themselves on providing the highest quality pulse products to both domestic and international markets. These crops are sourced from fertile fields in Montana and North Dakota and are handled with the utmost care to ensure the highest quality product.

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.
