With over 1/3 of the US food supply coming from abroad, it is important for food importers and manufacturers using ingredients that were imported to familiarize themselves with the nuances of making business work with foreign companies and individuals. Business acumen in the US does not necessarily translate to business acumen in a foreign country, even if the American speaks the language. Below are some resources I, and Andrew Tilson have put together.

I, Kristina Hernandez, am a Cuban-American that was raised in Miami by first generation Cuban parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts. Business in Miami is very different in some regards from business in most other parts of the US, because of the heavy influence from Latin America (once it was primarily the Cubans, but more recently it is also the central and south Americans).

After earning his MBA in Miami, Andrew Tilson moved to China, where he lived and worked for three years, learning Mandarin and many of the cultural nuances that distinguish China. He was very successful while in China, and found his own personality a good fit for many of the tasks he was charged with by his American employer while in China. He is interested in helping American companies avoid many of the subtle and sometimes devastating misconceptions that many companies have about doing business in China.
