International Marketing Handbook. The Southern United States Trade
Association (SUSTA) is now offering for sale the second edition of the SUSTA
"International Marketing Handbook". The "International Marketing Handbook",
particularly popular within the food and agricultural product community,
furnishes the novice as well as seasoned exporter with valuable suggestions,
contacts, and information concerning the international sale of food and
agricultural products. Briefly, the 135-page handbook highlights the roles
and responsibilities of the international banker, freight forwarder, steamship
agent, and maritime insurance agent in the international food trade. Each of
these role descriptions, written by well-known experts, describes the
procedures involved in moving food products safely into foreign markets. To
facilitate communications with associations, and federal and state agencies,
the handbook provides names and addresses of institutions that offer
assistance or publications within the food export trade. Many of these
publications are available at no cost. Food producers should be particularly
interested in the articles pertaining to the foreign transport and sale of
breeding livestock which is definitely strong in the southern region. In
addition, the American Foreign Trade Definitions, provided in the handbook,
are a necessity for any serious food exporter. The new updated version of the
"International Marketing Handbook" can be obtained from the SUSTA Office:
