In February of 2018, Prime Performance Nutrition, from Cosby, Missouri, reported gaining new export sales to Kuwait with the assistance of Food Export’s Market Access Program (MAP) funded Branded Program. Utilizing their allocated funds to focus on expanding their exports to Kuwait due to the robust race horse industry there, they looked to increase sales through product education and promotion.

With the promotion of their animal probiotics and supplements Prime Performance Nutrition gained 10 new foreign buyer contacts, earned a new agent relationship and realized $15,000 in new export sales. The Missouri Supplier also projects to do $30,000 in sales over the next twelve months.
