Overseas Agents for Exporting Food
For many Better-For-You brands, selling organic food and beverage products overseas involves working through an agent or a distributor. Knowing the difference in the roles between the two export professionals can help you make the right decisions. When you partner with Grovara, you gain access to a cutting-edge eCommerce platform and receive advice on how to maximize the services provided by an expert agent.

Our one-stop eCommerce platform is a virtual trade show that brings together organic food buyers and sellers worldwide. If your Better-For-You brand is ready to expand into overseas markets, registering for the Grovara onboarding process gets you up to speed in no more than 30 days. In less than a month, you start conversations with potential buyers located in international markets across the globe.
How Does an Agent Differ From a Distributor?
Unlike distributors, agents typically do not purchase your natural food and beverage products. Instead, they act as your brand’s sales representative in global markets. Agents take orders for your brand while you take care of the delivery of organic food and beverage products. Your brand is also responsible for invoicing international customers and collecting payments. When you start accessing the many tools offered by the Grovara eCommerce platform, you can establish the logistics for every order you need to deliver overseas.
Most agents operate on a commission basis, which means their success is tied to your success. Receiving a percentage of each sale represents a highly effective motivational strategy to help your brand increase sales in international markets you might not have ever penetrated. On the other hand, distributors assume the risk of selling organic food and beverage products by purchasing the products from organic food brands.
