UC Berkeley Extension Export Food Course

So we are talking one kind of wheat trade:
For the total export prospect, the I.G.C. placed the total for the current season at 13,500,000 tonnes of wheat equivalent, the same as the initial forecast issued in May.
And then there is the USA trade in that specific category:
U.S. imports were forecast at 250,000 tonnes of wheat equivalent, against the record of 322,000 in 2014-15. U.S. exports in 2015-16 were forecast at 350,000 tonnes, down from 385,000 in 2014-15.
So we import 250k of the stuff, and export 320k.    How come?  To legally avoid taxes, to launder bad product with good...  lots of reasons.  Such minutiae is how come we must specialize in our product areas, and work be to find joy in solving the problems that cause us pain.

If you need export sales of food, or are responsible for increasing export sales, I teach a seminar at UCBerkeley extension on how start-ups and established businesses can find customers directly, now.  Check it out...  eMail me with any questions...
