Continued Export Growth for Indiana Supplier

by Food Export | Jan 17, 2019
In June of 2018, Clabber Girl Corporation of Terre Haute, Indiana attended Food Export - Midwest’s Midwest Buyers Mission in Kansas City, Missouri. At the Mission the Indiana Supplier met with nine different international buyers to introduce to them their baking powders and other food ingredient products.

The buyers from Antigua and the United Arab Emirates proved to have great interest in the presented products as Clabber Girl earned $10,000 in export sales from these two buyers. These sales also represented first-time sales to the markets and gained the company two new agent relationships. Clabber Girl also projects sales of $45,000 to these markets and to Indonesia over the next twelve months.

Clabber Girl has worked with Food Export Association since 2001, participating in Buyers Missions, attending Focused Trade Missions, utilizing Food Show PLUS!™ services, attending state seminars, webinars and the Branded Program.

Clabber Girl Corporation grew from the original business that was incorporated over 150 years ago. By 1879 Clabber Girl was manufacturing a variety of products, including spices, coffees, and baking powder under many different brand names. By 1899 Clabber brand baking powder was introduced, and today the Clabber Girl brand, as renamed in 1923, is distributed nationwide and to many different countries around the world. The business has expanded its foodservice offerings to include baking powder, baking soda, cornstarch, and the Royal brand products which include cheesecakes, puddings and gelatins. Industrial formulations are designed specifically for the foodservice industry.  

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.
