Middle East Export Growth

by Food Export | May 16, 2018
Fornazor International from Hillsdale, New Jersey is an agricultural commodity trading company which has developed a relationship with Food Export since 2011. The New Jersey Supplier started utilizing Food Export’s Market Access Program (MAP) funded Branded Program to alleviate some of the expenses of international marketing activities and still continues to do so as it is a great way to enter a new foreign market.

In 2017 Fornazor continued to focus on growing their exports to the Middle East as part of their export market strategy. Knowing they wanted to exhibit at trade shows in the United Arab Emirates, they knew the Branded Program would be a great way to curb some of the forecasted expenses.

This February Fornazor was able to report that they have gained over $500,000 in actual sales from the United Arab Emirates and over $19,000,000 from Saudi Arabia this past year. Additionally they gained 90 new foreign buyer contacts and project over $20,000,000 in sales to the Mid East market over the next twelve months.

Fornazor International, Inc. also utilizes Food Export’s Online Product Catalog, the Food Export Helpline™, the Export Advisor Program, webinars and attend Buyers Missions. Founded in 1979 Fornazor International, Inc. started as a small trading company, and offered a narrow range of feed ingredients for export. The group now offers a wide variety of products for dairy and poultry animals as well as aquaculture. Feed ingredients include Animal Proteins, Marine Proteins and Vegetable Proteins, Finished Feeds, Aquaculture Feeds, Pet Food Ingredients, Alfalfa and Equine Feeds. In addition, they trade food items such as, but not limited to, fresh table eggs, Idaho potatoes, pizza sauce and foodservice items.

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.
