Missouri Supplier Expands Exports to Mexico After Successful Trade Mission

by Food Export | Jun 12, 2018
In September of 2017, Osage Food Products, located in Washington, Missouri, in the 3rd Congressional District, attended Food Export’s Focused Trade Mission to Mexico for Food Ingredients. While there, they interacted with multiple Mexican Buyers during prearranged meetings and had the opportunity to tour a production facility. In February 2018, just a few months later, they reported two new agent relationships and a successful sale of dairy ingredient products worth $200,000 as a result of the Trade Mission.

Operating since 1999, Osage Food Products has grown to supply a wide range of ingredients to the food and nutrition industries. They primarily focus on the dairy industry by offering whey and milk proteins as well as custom blend dairy ingredients. In 2014, they added Osage Flavors, a subsidiary that produces flavors for many different industries, including Bakery, Nutritional, and Confectionery.                      
Since 2010, Osage Food Products has participated in Buyers Missions, the Online Product Catalog and Webinars. This was the first Food Export Focused Trade Mission for Osage Food and they recently expanded to Food Export’s Branded Program.

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.
