New York Supplier Expands Exports to the Netherlands

by Food Export | Dec 14, 2017
Having a strong established distributor in the market coupled with the country’s interest in their flavorful Moroccan sauces helped New York based Supplier, Casablanca Foods LLC make an easy decision to utilize their allocated Market Access Program (MAP) allocated Branded Program funding to focus their marketing efforts in this international market.

Advertising in market publications, online and via social media helped Casablanca Foods gain exposure for their products that led to supplying samples to buyers. All these expenses were covered under the Branded Program expense and helped alleviate the cost of these activities.

With all their efforts Casablanca Foods was able to report $150,000 in sales and project to do another $500,000 in sales over the next twelve months. These sales also represent a first-time sale to the market for the New York based supplier.

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.
