Costa Rica guava producers take important export steps

Due to the improvements made to the infrastructure and equipment of the Food Processing and Marketing Center (CEPROMA) in Río Grande de Paquera, a group of local guava producers was able to initiate the procedures and necessary permits for exporting this delicious fruit that is produced in the Nicoya Peninsula.

The administration of CEPROMA of Río Grande is in charge of the Cooperativa de Productores de Guayaba Taiwanesa (Coopeproguata RL), which is made up of 40 families, who use the infrastructure, owned by Inder, as a collection and processing center for the fruit that then it is distributed in the national market.

As a result of the improvements made, the productive potential, processing, packaging will be increased and, in addition, the organization began the processes for export, such as an inspection of the plant by representatives of the State Phytosanitary Service.

This past week, the formal delivery of the improvements was made, during the visit of the executive president of Inder, Harys Regidor Barboza, who was accompanied by the vice president of the Republic, Marvin Rodríguez and the presidential officer for the Central Pacific, Juan Ramón Rivera , executive president of Incop.
