Wisconsin Company Exports to Canada With Help From Food Export's Branded Program

by Food Export | Nov 14, 2018
In 2017, Fortified Nutrition, located in Germantown, Wisconsin, in the 5th Congressional District, utilized Food Export’s Branded Program which assisted in connecting them with a buyer from Canada. In February, they made a sale of their product worth $15,000. This sale also marked their first export sale to Canada.

According to Michael Hay, Owner and Founder of Fortified Nutrition, projected sales are set to be $100,000. Fortified Nutrition has used Food Export’s Helpline, Webinars, and Branded Program to assist in exporting their products.

Fortified Nutrition is a producer of Evolved Snack Sticks and Harvest Sticks in the Processed Meats and Snack Bars segments, respectively.

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.
