Panama: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

This report provides U.S. food and agriculture exporters information on how to do business with the Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional (HRI) sector in Panama. The sudden and ongoing shutdown of most economic activity in Panama due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic battered the Panamanian economy, including the HRI sector. Although the foodservice supply chain industry was hurt by the pandemic, the sector is preparing for a slow re-opening following the planned, imminent lifting of strict safety measures.
