Costa Rica: Food Processing Ingredients

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Costa Rican consumers trust and enjoy the excellent reputation of U.S. food products and ingredients and demand has increased since the implementation of the Dominican Republic - Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) in 2009. The proximity of the United States to the Costa Rican market is a major advantage for shipping time and for U.S. exporters who wish to visit or communicate with potential customers. Although exports of U.S. sweeteners dropped nearly 45 percent to $2.7 million in 2016, market prospects for U.S. consumer-oriented products such as beef, poultry, dairy, wine and beer and pet food continue to increase with impressive growth, reaching $275 million in exports during the same period.
