Success With Food Show PLUS!™ at 2019 Seoul Food & Hotel

by Food Export | Aug 05, 2019
In May of 2019, Ravenna, Ohio based US Wine Exports Company Ltd. took advantage of Food Export – Midwest’s Food Show PLUS!™ service at Seoul Food & Hotel that took place in Seoul, South Korea. Food Show PLUS! ™ services included introductions to qualified buyers, in-market briefing, on-site assistance, and a self-guided retail tour.

According to Gino Mascio, Senior Partner at US Wine Exports, “The Food Export Food Show PLUS! service was a great experience that left us with many new contacts and leads. The Food Export team in Korea, Kristie Park, in particular, was really kind and helpful as well. We look forward to more events with you and your global teams.”

Additionally, US Wine Exports Company Ltd. utilized the Food Export’s Branded Program to help offset their costs of exhibiting at the show.  Eligible expenses included booth fees, flights, and lodging.

US Wine Exports Company Ltd. is an international trading company that produces and distributes US produced wines to the international market.

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.
