Panama: Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Panama is an attractive market for exporting U.S. agricultural food products. Its culturally diverse population, geographical location, and love for American food and culture provide for increasing export opportunities for U.S. high value food and beverage products. U.S. agricultural related products exports to Panama in the first half of 2019 reached $623.3 million. Panama has an ambitious public infrastructure plan and an expanding services sector that benefits from the country’s emerging role as a regional hub for trade. The hotel, restaurant and institution sectors are seeking high quality food products, services, culinary technology, and “trendy” foods to meet customer demands. The proliferation of pop-up restaurants, food trucks, specialized gastronomy, and international cuisine, backed by restaurant delivery services and online delivery platforms are excellent examples of such advancements.
