While at the summit, representatives from Agri-Dairy were introduced to qualified buyers, experienced a retail tour and had on-site assistance from the In-Market Representative, all resources provided through Food Export’s Food Show PLUS!™ program.

According to Ana Paula De Luca Almeida, International Sales Director, “Agri-Dairy met several new companies, developed a better understanding of the needs of its customers and substantially increased its operations to that market – in fact we saw a 65% increase in sales from January to July 2019 versus the full year of 2018. Mexico is such an important partner for U.S. dairy products, and we are really looking forward to participating at the same event in September of 2019 again.”
