Join UFA & Food Export for an informative webinar about Food Export's Branded Program, which is designed to provide cost reimbursement for a variety of marketing activities.

  • International web site development
  • Foreign market-compliant packaging and labels
  • Advertising and public relations
  • In-store promotions and product demonstrations
  • Marketing and point-of-sale materials
  • Freight costs for product samples

Attend to learn how to apply for the Branded Program and how these funds can help you plan your promotional and development activities for 2023 and beyond.

Food Export is supportive of UFA and of the upcycling movement. They are eager to support our Members who are working to reduce food waste. Read more about Food Export's Branded Program here.
