Export

Your product is ready for new markets. The Swiss Import Promotion Programme (SIPPO) will help you to export products in the following sectors: fish and seafood, processed foods, natural ingredients, technical wood, value-added textiles and sustainable tourism.

SIPPO supports the export of sustainably produced and certified products from its eleven partner countries to Switzerland, the EU or other promising regional markets.

We work directly with export promotion boards and sector-wide associations, supporting the expansion and quality of their services for the exports of their members and clients. Through export promotion boards, local businesses gain access to customised export services.
