by Food Export | Mar 20, 2018
During 2017, Nu Life Market located in Scott City, Kansas, in the 1st Congressional District; participated in Food Export’s Market Access Program (MAP) funded Branded Program. With the program assistance Nu Life Market gained knowledge and financial assistance to strengthen their export markets in China.

Their total export sales grew from $42,120 in 2015 to a whopping $303,920 in 2016.  They are on track to continue to increase their total export sales in emerging markets in the future years.

Nu Life Market is a producer of flours, brans, and grains using sorghum. Nu Life Market prides themselves in using sorghum to create gluten free flour that is high in dietary fiber. All their products are produced under strict food safety protocol in gluten free, dairy free, peanut free, and soy free facilities. Nu Life Market combines the dedication and skill of professional farmers, food scientists, and nutritionists to provide their customers high quality flour and grain products.

Nu Life Market attended a food show in China last fall with funding and education supplied through Food Export's Branded Program. Earl Roemer, President of Nu Life Market, shared they have created relationships with 17 solid market development leads and China academic business consultants. As the markets continue to open they believe they will need two new export support staff members within an expected time frame of one year. They have begun sourcing more grain sorghum from Western Kansas and their current request for quotes has already reached 3,000 metric tons from other potential customers in China.
