Exporters of U.S. beef, pork, and lamb are meeting with buyers from Central America, South America, and the Caribbean this week.
John Hinners, senior vice president of industry relations with the U.S. Meat Export Federation, says the Latin American Product Showcase helps advance trade in the region.
“It’s so important to put buyer and seller together. If we were to try to service Central America or South America and meet with all the buyers, it could take an entire year to go out and meet this many people and try to sell the product that we have,” he says.
