CDFA partners with community colleges to launch export training program

CDFA is partnering with the State Center Community College District and the Fresno Center for International Trade Development to launch an export training program for California food and agriculture companies.

This training program, focusing on new-to-export agricultural businesses, will help companies prepare and succeed in international markets. 

“International trade provides an opportunity for food companies to scale-up their business, providing additional skill-sets for employees and diversifying revenue streams,” said CDFA Secretary Karen Ross. “Recent disruptions to our global food supply chain underscores the importance of trade. California farmers, ranchers and food processors are well positioned to provide CA GROWN products to consumers worldwide.”

The California Agricultural Export Training Program (CalAgX) will begin in May and registration is currently available. Attendees will learn from industry experts on issues related to logistics, finance, documentation, and import regulations.
