WUSATA's Trade Mission and Business Meetings - This outbound mission will be a 4 day matchmaking and networking event. The primary goal of this mission is to help U.S. producers meet qualified buyers, retailers, wholesalers and distributors, while also experiencing and learning about the Colombian marketplace as well as the Costa Rican marketplace. Western United States producers will have the opportunity to sit down in one-to-one meetings with buyers as well as visit facilities and local retailers.

This is a great opportunity for new-to-market companies to explore the Colombian and Costa Rican markets, and for companies already exporting to these countries to further expand their reach. Colombia is one of the top three largest economies in Central and South America with growing purchasing power, while Costa Rica continues to be a strong market in the region. Both of these countries have a free trade agreement that helps U.S. food and agricultural products.
