Costa Rican exotics could double export volumes

A wide selection of Costa Rican companies attended Fruit Logistica under a colourful stand and the slogan "Essential Costa Rica". One of them was Tropi Foods, a family company in operation for over 25 years and devoted to the production and export of exotic fruits, which also owns an advanced laboratory, where it develops and improves exotics seeds.

Cassava, yam, Eddoes malanga and Taro malanga are just some of the products that are part of the wide range of the company, which plans to boost its production volumes in the coming years in spectacular fashion.

"We came to Fruit Logistica to showcase our new packing plant. We currently export about 500 containers, and we believe that its construction will allow us to double that volume; it is part of a strategic expansion plan," explains Edgar Medina, owner and Commercial Manager of Tropi Foods.

This expansion plan has led the company to a process of diversification in the destinations of its products.

"At first, our largest market was the United States, but we have now grown and more than 50% of what we produce is marketed in Europe, where interest in our products is shown mostly by consumers of Asian origin."

According to Edgar, Tropi Foods will be actively present in trade fairs worldwide to showcase their wide range, pointing out that they have already booked their stand for the next five editions of Fruit Logistica.

"Our production is not only expanding in volume, but also in quality, and proof of this is that we are proudly one of the first 50 companies to receive the 'Essential Costa Rica' certification; a new brand that has emerged as an initiative to agglomerate companies that produce high quality products in an environmentally responsible and transparent manner," concludes Edgar.
