What does TEN the export network?

TEN the Export network offers advice and support to food companies that want to export their products to foreign countries. We coordinate export activities, stimulate business development projects and set up new international pathways. In addition, we professionalize existing export activities and we work as a SIB consultant for SME companies.

About us

In 2007, Albert Hall and Janet Laird decided to bundle their years of experience in export and marketing and to use them for others. Since then they have been helping both large and small businesses in their export activities. This support ranges from giving advice at the strategic level to selling products abroad.
