Ed King and Grapette: A Great Americana Brand and Export Story

Episode Summary

Welcome to the 12th episode of Export Stories Podcast and our 1st episode of 2020! We had such an enjoyable discussion with Ed King, co-owner and Vice President of Grapette International, Inc., and we believe you will enjoy the discussion, as well.

Episode Notes

Some of you may remember Grapette – including the cool animal syrup bottles, the historic jingles and ads.  What you may not have realized is that Grapette became a very successful U.S. export and continues to sell into many foreign markets today.


For more information about Grapette International, you can visit their website at: http://grapette.com/.  Take a few minutes to read about their fascinating history, which we discuss during the podcast.
