How to Find an Overseas Distributor For Your Wellness Products
It is the perfect storm that exporters face when learning how to find an overseas distributor for their wellness products. Significant disruptions in the supply chain make it difficult for many exporters to promptly send their organic food and beverage products to international markets. Food shortages have started to develop in less wealthy countries and affluent countries such as the United States. Tariff wars and rapidly changing government regulations put exporters under tremendous pressure to find the right distributors.
There is a solution to ride through the perfect storm unscathed, and it is called registering to join the revolutionary eCommerce platform hosted by Grovara.
Since 2010, Philadelphia-based Grovara has changed the way exporters and importers of American better-for-you food and beverage products conduct business.

Tips for Forging a Business Relationship with an Overseas Distributor
Grovara helps organic food and beverage brands connect with the most reliable distributors for American healthy food and beverage products. However, there are a few things your brand can do to improve the exporting process.
First, prepare to complete legal and trade certifications. Your products must comply with the unique laws established by each country where you have a presence. Second, consider working with a language translation service to prevent communication breakdowns from slowing down the export process. Third, create an international distribution agreement covering payment terms, purchase orders, product pricing, and regional exclusivity. Having exclusive trade rights for a specific region or an entire country can increase sales. Finally, communicate with your overseas distributors to address any distribution issues once a month.
Above all, provide a consistent flow of high-quality products to build long-term partnerships with each distributor of your organic food and beverage products.
