CFEA is a voluntary non-profit industry association founded in September 1996 by a group of fourteen companies who felt the need for a resource focused on the enhancement of export efforts in the food and beverage industry, particularly (but not exclusively) on the part of small to medium-sized enterprises (SME's).  The mission of the organization is to:
