Have you noticed how some products are called one name in the US, but they're known by some other name in another part of the world? Or how about seeing other cool varieties of a particular US product overseas? Why the discrepancies?
Global trade these days has already allowed countries to import and export various items in any category. Thanks to trade liberalization policies, the exchange of goods has never been more dynamic than today. Take food items, for instance. All over the world, we can now taste proudly locally made products from all over the world. So it's not uncommon now to see milk from New Zealand, cereals from South America, salt from the Himalayas and other uniquely foreign-made food items in your local grocery store or supermarket.
The same is true with any other kind of fast-moving consumer goods or FMCGs. Personal care products like toiletries and make-up have also been sold globally. We can already see that with consumer electronic products and other luxury items.
So how come there are still some items that are not readily available in the US? Given that it's a huge market, have you wondered why certain foreign-made items or food stuff are not yet in the US? We're wondering about that, too!
So here's a sample of those kinds of products that we hopefully could also see in the US markets, soon. Take this quiz and test your knowledge -- and whet your appetite!
