Program that aims to help manufacturers export is graduating second class
A program that helps manufacturers develop export strategies is graduating its second class Tuesday in Norfolk.
Virginia’s second ExporTech class graduation is scheduled to take place from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Norfolk ODU Innovation Center at 501B Boush St. The program, whose first class graduated last December in Norfolk, is a partnership among public and private associations, including federal and state economic development organizations.
Over the course of the program, local companies develop an export sales strategy for the global marketplace. They then execute their export strategies and report their progress to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) at the U.S. Department of Commerce.
The companies graduating from the Virginia ExporTech Program are:
Asorbas Salsas, Norfolk: Asorbas Salsas are made with natural ingredients grown by local farmers.
