International Trade Office
Agriculture is the largest industry in North Carolina. NCDA International Marketing has close relations with that $77-billion industry. We provide motivation and support for our partner companies so they can export and reach 95 percent of the global market. This partnership has helped NC ag exports increase about 10 percent a year on average.
The support we provide includes staffing expertise, research, training, financial assistance, certifications and whatever else it takes.
To make international markets accessible to each and every agricultural based operation in North Carolina.
Building our NC customers confidence and trust
To make North Carolina agriculture an international based economy by 2025 one operation at a time.
The Definition of Success
NCDA International Marketing’s “hedgehog,” where all three circles converge, is when NC Agribusinesses, through relationships developed with our staff, successfully make their first export sales or find a new market overseas.
For NCDA International Marketing to be a great organization, it focuses on accomplishing this goal with each and every NC Agribusiness.
