The Prune Board has carried out marketing activities on behalf of the California Prune Industry in Europe since 1986. 

As a participant in the US Department of Agriculture’s Market Access Programme (MAP), the board is asking for proposals from any companies interested in the bidding on its research and evaluation programmes covering the EU.

The successful candidate would have the ability to carry out research and evaluation either specialising in one market or across all countries simultaneously. 

Interested parties should prepare a proposal outlining company profile, experience in food accounts, experience in national surveys and field analysis, and experience in Market Access Programme work. Proposals should be sent to by Friday 18th November.
