Ready Nutrition Scores Exports at Food Export Buyers Mission

by Food Export | Nov 13, 2018
In September of 2017, Ready Nutrition attended Food Export’s Natural Products Buyers Mission at the 2017 Natural Products Expo East Show. There Pat Cavanaugh, President of the Pennsylvania based company, along with Nolan Cavanaugh, Marketing, met with nine international buyers to introduce to them his line of snack bars, dietary supplements and protein water.

Enthusiastic about the product offerings from Ready Nutrition, the buyers from Qatar, Mexico, Guatemala and Canada continued conversation post mission. This past February Ready Nutrition was able to report $100,000 of new export sales to these markets while also earning four new agent relationships.

Ready Nutrition has utilized Food Export’s Market Access Program (MAP) funded programs and service since 2014 by attending Buyers Missions, listing their products in the Online Product Catalog, using the Food Export Helpline™ and participating in webinars.


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.
