New York's BobbySue's Nuts Continues On In South Korea

by Food Export | Jun 16, 2020
BobbySue’s Nuts from Chappaqua, New York, is a leading supplier of premium, all-natural nut mixes. The New York Supplier continues to develop and expand exports into South Korea, by retaining a repeat order with a major South Korea buyer who they met last year.

BobbySue’s Nuts had utilized Agriculture Trade Promotion (ATP) funds in the market in 2019 to further their export sales to the market and their orders over the past 12 month include 3 containers totaling  80 pallets.

Adam Kobren, President of BobbySue’s Nuts, mentioned “With Food Export – Northeast’s Branded Program assistance we have gained exports into South Korea, an unknown territory for us. The market’s first language is not English, and with the help of Branded Program, it gave support to Korean packaging and bags, as well doing demos and advertising for the product.  The customer has re-ordered again in 2020. The Branded Program has been super helpful in the process.”

BobbySue’s Nuts has participated in Food Export programs and services since 2012 utilizing the Branded Program, and the Online Product Catalog.
BobbySue’s Nuts was born from a generations-old family recipe for irresistible spiced nuts and is fueled by a passion for helping homeless animals. The company takes pride in offering delicious, healthy, premium nut blends in innovative flavors.  BobbySue’s Nuts has an ongoing commitment to donate 2% of net profits to the SPCA of Westchester, New York (a no-kill shelter  that rescues  animals  from  all of the  United  States).
