Mexico Brings Excellent Export Possibilities

Mexico’s close proximity to the U.S. makes it an ideal partner for international trade, and the country received about $2.8 billion in exports from Wisconsin companies in 2014. A low cost of doing business and a strong desire for, and familiarity with, American products add to the allure of exporting to Mexico. For Wisconsin companies seeking to expand their Mexican exports, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is leading a global trade venture to Mexico from Feb. 21-26, 2016. Participants will be scheduled for one-on-one meetings with prospective business partners in Guadalajara and Mexico City. Learn more about the WEDC global trade venture to Mexico.



Headquartered in Milwaukee, Hatco has been a driving force of innovation in the food service industry since 1950. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the company realized that its primary markets for expansion were overseas, but it had little experience with conducting business internationally. Learn how Hatco increased its brand awareness on a global scale to successfully navigate complex international markets.
