The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) wants to equip you with tools for exporting success.

Many companies are interested in exporting but few take the time to assess their level of readiness before moving forward. Answering a few basic questions using this online Exporter Assessment tool will help you determine whether you and your company are ready to take the next step.

When you are ready to export your product, our MDA staff can help you develop an export plan, or you can use this Export Plan Template from the International Trade Administration to develop your own.

In addition to our services, the Food Export Association of the Midwest, U.S. Department of Agriculture Foreign Agricultural Service, and other partner organizations provide a broad range of resources that can help you get started with exporting for the very first time, or to brush up on an existing target market.
