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 that time, they have helped companies large and small with their food export activities. Their support varies from providing strategic advice to the sale of food products in foreign countries.
