Ontario Food Exports has designed a program to help those interested in exporting to the US Market. PROFIT (Program to Raise Ontario Food International Trade) presents an excellent opportunity for companies wanting to learn more about market potential, exporting, and building relationships to engage more brokers or distributors.
For over 20 years, PROFIT has been an important step in the export success of hundreds of Ontario manufacturers. Some graduates have returned several times to update their skills and contacts. If you are considering any of the following, this may be a perfect way in which to leverage knowledge from both industry experts and peers:
* Are you ready to enter the US market?
* Have you entered the US market but find the border a challenge?
* Or perhaps don't know how to engage more brokers or distributors?
* Do you have new employees who need to better understand the US market and the processes involved selling into the USA?
* Do you want to investigate the potential in the US market?
PROFIT's special two-day seminar takes place just once a year and is critical in assisting build organization's export strength. This year's event is scheduled for June 5-6, 2012 in Toronto and Buffalo, New York. So, whether you are new to exporting, or have colleagues who need export training, this program is an outstanding opportunity and is considered a very value-added venture for food manufacturers seeking to expand their markets into the US.
