Minnesota Supplier Grows Exports

by Food Export | May 17, 2018
Midwest Ag Enterprises, from Marshall, Minnesota has utilized Food Export’s Branded Program for seven years to expand and grow their export sales. Using the 50% cost reimbursement Market Access Program (MAP) funded program helps defer costs associated with exporting. Utilizing their allocated funds to attend VIV Asia Show helped the company promote their Nutrivance, SDP80, Anion Booster and Peptone 50 Animal Feed products.

During 2017 attending this international trade show helped the Minnesota supplier increase brand awareness while gaining the interest of buyers from Mexico and Thailand. This past February Midwest Ag Enterprises was able to report actual sales of over $200,000 to Thailand and Mexico last year while also gaining 150 new foreign contacts because of the help of their allocated MAP funds.

Midwest Ag Enterprises is a distributor of Animal Feed Ingredients in the Animal Feed market. This privately held company established in 2002, is an exporter of high quality feed ingredients to end-user customers in the Pacific-rim and China.

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.
