Pennsylvania Snack Company Highly Successful in Exporting

by Food Export | Dec 14, 2017
In 2017, SB Global Foods Incorporated, located in Hatboro, Pennsylvania in the 13th Congressional District, succeeded in exporting a wide range of items in their ‘Pretzel Pete’ product line to various foreign destinations. Some of these foreign markets include: Bahrain, China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Taiwan, and the United Arab Emirates.

According to Mr. Karl Brown, “Without the Market Access Program (MAP) and the support of different trade shows; the company would not be nearly as advanced as we are now regarding exporting.” Mr. Brown attributes 95% of export sales throughout the past two decades to the company’s strong working relationship with Food Export’s Programs. In fact, earlier this year SB Global Foods Inc. moved away from a co-packing production model and moved towards doing their own in-house manufacturing. Exporting was an important component in the decision to move to the larger manufacturing facility. As a result of the move, seven additional staff members have been hired.

SB Global Foods Inc is a producer of packaged consumer snack, confection, and grocery products in the snack and grocery segment.

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.
