Morrison is on TradeUp platform and has made headway on its capital raise, recently locking in $50,000 toward a $400,000 equity raise. 

Morrison is a USDA food manufacturer with a fully built out automated infrastructure and a range of healthy products. The company has also implemented e-commerce. Morrison President Gene Tafoya cited as some of the drivers behind its success in export markets keen willingness to seek out the best service providers for exporters in the United States, including by leveraging TradeUp’s contact network; strong, high-quality, and highly competitive products; and commitment to meeting national food safety, packaging, and other standards in different markets.
