Are You Ready to Export?


Many companies think they want to export – but few take the time to assess their level of readiness before moving forward. Answer a few basic questions and determine whether you’re prepared to take the next step.

If you are ready to export, MDA can help you formulate an export plan. You can also review the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s brief tutorial on preparing for export success, or reference this Export Plan Template to develop your own.

Food Export-Midwest provides a suite of free webinars on exporting essentials, as well as educational materials covering just about every export topic you might need to research!
