In recognition of Colombia’s growing presence on the international fresh produce markets, we shine a light on Colombia as an emerging supplier to global markets and one of the continent’s most dynamic produce markets.
Colombia’s growing fruit and vegetable industry
The country is rapidly becoming an attractive source of high-quality fruits and vegetables for the international market. Due its wide massive variety of microclimates and fertile soils that produce an exceptional range of fruits, including avocados, physalis, mangoes, passionfruit and blueberries, to name just a few.
Improved access to new markets and a new record level of foreign investment are creating an abundance of opportunities for producers in Europe and Asia. “This is Colombia’s moment,” says Felipe Jaramillo, president of ProColombia. “As we enter a new post-war era, the macroeconomic indicators are excellent. But one of the biggest challenges we face is to make our producers a more constant and permanent presence in export markets.”
Colombia also has a thriving fresh fruit import market and one of the most dynamic retail sectors in Latin America. It is one of the region’s biggest importers of apples, pears and grapes and there is growing scope to develop consumer demand for new product categories such as cherries and blueberries.
The Fruitnet Forum Colombia
Fruitnet Forum Colombia will be held on 26-27 June 2018 at the Hilton Hotel in Bogotá’s exclusive financial district, bringing together decision makers from throughout Colombia’s fresh fruit and vegetable business, and from across the rest of the world.” A programme of senior-level international speakers will analyse the key issues affecting today’s produce industry, offering an invaluable insight into new expansion opportunities and how to avoid some of the pitfalls that could stall future growth.
