Well, we made it! After a long trip, the Abbey Brown Fam has arrived in South Africa for a three week trip, including an International Trade Show. We’ve carted along 2 suitcases full of product and have 13 meetings set up some in Johannesburg and some in Cape town! Among them, we are meeting with an NGO to discuss our educational opportunities and also a number of private labeling opportunities.
The support has been huge and welcoming toward small businesses here in South Africa. The experience is a great one already! What a tremendous effort Illinois has made to support this trade mission. We are grateful for this opportunity and challenge to export. Can’t wait to see what the next few weeks have in store…stay tuned.
