CDFA's Ross to go to China, Vietnam
California Department of Food and Agriculture secretary Karen Ross is leading a trade delegation to China and Vietnam in September, the agency announced today. The trip will enable California business owners to have ndividual meetings with foreign importers, briefings by U.S. agricultural officials, and visit wholesale/retail market outlets to learn about in-market distribution and sales formats. The Sept. 16-21 trade mission is funded through a grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration. Here is the state's news release. I have a call in to CDFA for more details.
