The American Soybean Association’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (ASA/WISHH) and Missouri Qualified State Soybean Board (QSSB) are in Myanmar and Cambodia this month, visiting with local soyfood and animal feed companies.
WISHH Asia Division Director Alan F. Poock, Missouri Soybean Merchandising Board Member David Lueck and Missouri Soybean’s Director of Business Development and New Markets Tony Stafford are meeting with soymilk and tofu companies, who will participate in the Quality Samples Program (QSP), in addition to past trade team members, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) covering Myanmar, conducting regular trade servicing and visiting a Cambodian aquaculture farm and animal feed companies.
Cambodia is WISHH’s newest Asian market, which has opportunities in both the human foods and animal feed sectors. WISHH’s Myanmar program focuses on developing the human foods market.
Funding for Poock’s travel costs is provided through USDA’s Foreign Market Development (FMD) Program.
