Q. I’m interested in exporting and selling packaged energy bars to US and Asia. Where can I find information to help me get started? A. Despite the global economic turmoil that has taken place, dietary supplements continue to post positive gains across the globe. Nowhere is that more evident than in the People’s Republic of China, according to a report by Agriculture and Agri-food Canada. In another report by Agriculture and Agri-food Canada, total health and wellness food and beverage sales in the United States were on the rebound, growing by 2% from 2011 to 2012 (and 6% from 2010 to 2012). The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service provides country information, market potential assessments, in-country contacts and events, as well as the name of the Trade Commissioner with specific responsibility for the sector in the country. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada also has detailed information on exporting food from Canada.
