AGEXPORT has organised an 80-member delegation to represent the entire offer of Guatemala's agriculture products and related services at the 2017 edition of the PMA Fresh Summit.

According to Mr. Estuardo Castro, president of the Agritrade Platfrom of AGEXPORT, Guatemala’s participation in this international fair has contributed the establishment of the United States as a key partner for Guatemala. Nowadays, the country exports more than than US$1.1 billion in vegetables and fresh fruits to the US yearly. 

"During these 30 years, as exporters and visitors of these fair, we have been able to meet with industry leaders, improve our relations with suppliers, gather important decision-making information; all these with the objective of developing more businesses. We are also displaying for the first time our “Guatemala Beyond Expectations” brand, explained Mr. Castro.

Guatemala’s 2017 delegation grew by 75% due to the participation of 50 companies that seek to generate more than 200 business meetings. This, added to the agriculture and IT companies that offer services for agricultural processes, stated the President of AGRITRADE. 

The companies integrating this delegation are: Aliar, Coprisa, Frutesa, Frutico, Flores Bohemia, Agrocumbre, Cooperative Agrícola Integral Cuatro Pinos, Asocafé Pochuta, Logidoc, Maxim, FIDA, AIMAR, APL, SIESA, Homeland, Agroindustrias Del Trópico, San Juan Agroexport, El Labrador, FONAGRO, Grupo El Tesoro, Corporación Occidental, COMBEX IM, UPS and Agribolsa; as well as representatives from the Peas and Ornamentals commissions of AGEXPORT.
