Poultry & Egg Export Council is hosting a reverse trade mission in Miami in conjunction with the Americas Food and Beverage Show (AFB), Sept. 30 to Oct. 2. The export-focused event is intended to stimulate export opportunities for U.S. eggs and egg products by bringing together egg buyers from the Caribbean and Mexico with U.S. egg producers. “We participated in our first trade mission for this region last year and were encouraged by the response from both the egg industry and egg buyers,” says John Howeth, senior vice president, market development, AEB. “What we’re doing this year is bridging the knowledge gap in the market by communicating the benefits and functionality of U.S. eggs and egg products.”
