Export Success for Wisconsin/New Jersey Supplier

by Food Export | Sep 24, 2019
MCT Dairies, Inc. aka Bella Pac LLC is a full-line dairy distributor and trading house established in 1983. They are headquartered in Chatham, New Jersey, with a manufacturing facility in Appleton, Wisconsin, and sales offices in Appleton, Onalaska, and Green Bay, Wisconsin.

MCT Dairies is a leading supplier of cheese and dairy ingredients, including cheese, butter, butterfats, milk powder, and dried dairy proteins.

In 2018 MCT Dairies utilized Food Export – Northeast’s Market Access Program (MAP) funded Branded Program to grow their exports to Mexico, the Philippines, South Korea, and Singapore. They did this by using their allocated funds to attend international trade shows such as the Food Technology Summit in Mexico, Food & Hotel Asia in Singapore, and World Food Expo in Manila. Funding helped offset the high costs of exhibiting, shipping samples and traveling to the shows.

Because of their show attendance the New Jersey Supplier was able to gain over $200,000 in new export sales while also projecting to complete over $2M more in sales over the next twelve months. This also comes with gaining over 20 new foreign buyer contacts and making 7 new agent relationships.

MCT Dairies has participated in Food Export programs since 2008 utilizing the Branded Program, attending Buyers Missions, Focused Trade Missions, Food Show PLUS!™ events, webinars and the Online Product Catalog.

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.
