Red's Best Enters New Export Markets

by Food Export | Dec 14, 2017
Founded in 2006, Red’s Best, a Seafood wholesaler from Boston, Massachusetts, provides exceptional seafood products out of New England. The company works very closely with Food Export Northeast utilizing many services and programs including the Food Export Helpline™, Market Builder, and Seafood Research Reports. In addition, Red’s Best also participates in Food Export’s Online Product Catalog.

In March of 2017, the Massachusetts company attended Food Export’s Market Access Program (MAP) funded Seafood Buyers Mission at the Seafood Expo North America in Boston.  At the event, Red’s Best was able to enter into seven new markets and gain over a half million dollars new sales.  The company’s founder, Jared Auerbach, was very pleased with Food Export’s services at the event saying “The Food Export staff is great and this event was fantastic”. 

Red’s Best mission is to support the livelihoods of American fishermen while sustaining fisheries for harvest.  They do this by partnering with 1,000 New England boats annually. They offer an assortment of seafood products including Bluefish, Atlantic Cod, and Chatham Mussels. 

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.
