Groups Receive RAPP Funding for Export Development

Multiple major U.S. agricultural organizations were pleased to receive funding allocations from the USDA’s Regional Agricultural Promotion Program.

One of the groups, the U.S. Meat Export Federation, is “honored and grateful” for the funding from RAPP. “This additional investment in foreign market development is very timely and will be especially helpful in expanding demand for U.S. red meat in emerging markets,” says USMEF President and CEO Dan Halstrom.

Ryan LeGrand, President and CEO of the U.S. Grains Council, says RAPP funding is a game changer. “This will allow a significant expansion of the great work that the Council and staff are already doing worldwide,” LeGrand says.

Food Export-Midwest and Food Export-Northeast are also thrilled to receive funding under RAPP. Food Export-Midwest and Food Export-Northeast CEO Brendan Wilson says it’s a privilege to empower small and medium-sized businesses in their 23 member states to sell their food and agricultural products internationally.
