First-Time Export Success from Wisconsin Flavor Supplier

by Food Export | Feb 20, 2020
In 2019, R2H Flavor Technology, LLC located in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, in the 6th Congressional District, joined Food Export – Midwest’s Market Access Program (MAP) funded Branded Program.

To expand their foreign market, R2H Flavor Technology, LLC utilized the 50% cost reimbursement provided by the Branded Program to attend IFFA, the world’s leading meat exhibition held in Frankfurt, and Food Ingredients Asia held in Bangkok. At the international tradeshows, the company promoted their “True*Smoke” series of natural smoke flavors to Asian and European customers and won their appreciation.

With their well-planned export strategy, edge-cutting technology and experienced staff, R2H Flavor Technology, LLC successfully exported their products to Germany and Thailand market for the first time in 2019. They reported sales of $150,000 to Germany and $30,000 to Thailand. For 2020, the company expects to double their sales in Germany and acquire $120,000 in Thailand.

New to the Branded Program in 2019, Food Export looks forward to continuing to support this Wisconsin based Supplier and helping them continue to expand their export success!

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.
