by Food Export | Mar 19, 2018
In June 2017, Breton Enterprises dba Natural Nectar, from Huntington, New York, attended Food Export’s Summer Fancy Food Buyers Mission held in conjunction with Specialty Food’s Summer Fancy Food Show. At the mission the New York Supplier promoted their cookies, crackers and snacks gaining strong interest from the buyers representing South Korea and India.

This January Vincent de Sartre, Business Director Western Region / Export Director for Natural Nectar reported new export sales of $850 to South Korea and $500 to India as a result of this mission last year and project that they will do over $2,500 more in sales to these two markets over the next twelve months.
