Exporting Agricultural Products

Hawaii’s exports of agriculture are an important—and growing—part of our local economy.  Join us for this exciting seminar to learn about topics that exporters should be thinking about, including shipping, labeling, testing, tariffs, and many others.  We will also discuss government resources that are available to assist from a State and Federal level.

Learn about the HiSTEP 2019 program and the various trade shows that the Department of Agriculture attends.

Speakers include Department of Agriculture foreign market experts and HPEC mentors.  A panel of exporters who have successfully sold and shipped their agricultural products to foreign markets will share their experiences and lessons learned.

The Hawaii Pacific Export Council (HPEC) is a Honolulu-based 501(c)3 non-profit focused on increasing the exports of Hawaii and Pacific Island companies by providing training and mentoring on export-related topics.  HPEC holds the “Meet the Exporter” Brown Bag Lunches on the last Wednesday of the month — mark your calendar! Bring your own lunch and learn from the experts about exporting.  These events are an invaluable resource as the speakers are seasoned exporters and the event provides extensive Q&A networking opportunities with professionals throughout the export chain.  We have several other events each year, such as the Pacific Islands Export University 101, export topic-specific seminars, and international networking meetings.
