With a uniquely flexible handling capacity and a product base of over 2,000 products under 50 brands, I.A.S. Corp. caters to the retail, food service and ingredient market segments.

In January of 2017 IAS met one-on-one with twenty pre-qualified international buyers at Food Export’s Northeast Buyers Mission. The New Jersey Supplier presented their soups, food ingredients, confectionery products and bakery products to their pre-selected buyers and were received with much enthusiasm. Reporting over $90,000 in new actual sales after the event with notable sales to Colombia for $40,000, representing a first-time sale to the market for IAS was part of the mission highlights.

Utilizing Food Export programs and services since 2000, International American Supermarket Corp (IAS) has participated in Buyers Missions, Food Show PLUS!™ services, the Online Product Catalog, webinars and the Food Export Helpline™.

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.
