We are asking again for your help with our annual Export Development Program survey for your beers exported in 2013.
As you know, the Export Development Program (EDP) is funded in large part by grants made available to the BA from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Through our participation in USDA grant programs, the EDP is required to report on various aspects of industry exports. Future funding hinges on such reporting.
The EDP annual survey is designed to collect data needed for these reports including export data by country, volume, value, brands exported, brewery expenses in support of exports, and more. This information is confidential and is not shared with any other brewer. The EDP aggregates the information into reports used by staff to determine how best to utilize resources and for reports submitted to USDA.
Please fill out the online survey by visiting: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/EDP2013Survey
Please reply to this survey by February 4, 2014.
If you did not export any beers in 2013 please let me know. And if you are interested in exporting to any international markets for the first time in 2014, please let me know this too.
Thank you for your participation in this survey.
And if you would like additional information on the BA Export Development Program, please contact me, Mark Snyder.
