"Making the World Feel Better One Cookie at a Time"

by Food Export | Jun 06, 2018
A six year participant of Food Export’s Market Access Program (MAP) funded Branded Program has helped Midland Park, New Jersey’s The Fatboy Cookie Company Inc. expand their cookie sales to many international markets. The 50% cost reimbursement Branded Program has helped alleviate some of the costs associated with product label changes/modifications when entering international markets for this gourmet cookie supplier.

In 2017, The Fatboy Cookie Company Inc. utilized allocated Branded Program funds to revise their product labels to meet the requirements of the Saudi Arabian market. The MAP funding helped the New Jersey Supplier acquire $8,000 of new export sales, gain 1 new foreign buyer contact, earn 1 new agent relationship and also project $20,000 of sales over the next twelve months. This sale also represents a first-time sale to Saudi Arabia for the company.

Joel’s Outrageous is a producer of Cookie Dough in 7 flavors: Chocolate Chunk, Oatmeal Raisin, White Chocolate Macadamia, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk, Cranberry Nut, Dutch Chocolate Chunk Walnut, and English Toffee Chocolate Chip.
