Costa Rica continues to be an attractive market for U.S. exporters of food, beverages, and agricultural products. Consumers are highly receptive to U.S. food brands and recognize their high quality and innovative characteristics. Beer, wine, ingredients, processed meats and pet food are among the fastest growing categories of U.S. exports but great potential exists for other products such as prime beef cuts, wines, beer, and consumer-oriented goods. The increased penetration of franchises, international retailing brands and commercial plazas in Costa Rica are making local consumers more open to new food products creating unlimited potential for U.S. exporters.
