Branded Program Utilization Helps Grow Iowa Supplier's Exports

by Food Export | Jul 17, 2018
Diamond V Mills, a part of Diamond V Mills, located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in the 2nd Congressional District, has used the Branded Market Access Program (MAP) for 10 years to increase export sales in Spain, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Brazil.

The MAP funds received through the Branded Program allowed Diamond V to promote their Diamond V XPC™LS, NutriTek®, SmartCare®, and EpiCor® products. This has supported our growth strategies in these countries.

According to Mike Goble, “The Branded Market Access Program has been a great advantage in supporting our marketing and sales efforts in key countries with growth potential.” As a result, Goble says, Diamond V has gained greater market penetration and recognition of the company's leading role in global animal nutrition and health.
Diamond V Mills has a 75-year history as a family-owned company based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It has established a global reputation as "The Trusted Experts in Nutrition and Health®" and has pioneered natural immune products for animal health, animal production, and food safety worldwide.
