Our Partners

Our partners include internationally renowned culinary schools and celebrity chefs, food service associations, international agriculture import / export specialists and public relations professionals around the globe. We are also well-versed working with State and U.S. Federally funded commodity programs and fulfilling their reporting requirements.
