Terra Exports, a multi-national import and export trading company, has opened a new Central and South American division for tropical fruit amid booming demand.
The Colombia-based office was opened in January, with sales having tripled last year.
Ana Milena Pereira Gallego, who is spearheading this division for Terra Exports, said that with the launch of the new division, Terra exports sold 200% more of what they sold last year in tropical fruit sales during the same month.
Terra Exports aims to supply tropical fruit across the world and work with countries they haven’t yet including Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, and Brazil.
The company’s tropical fruit exports include pitahaya, mango, pineapples, bananas, limes, papaya, watermelon, honeydew, and some vegetables as snow peas and sugar snaps.
“Our customers are very happy, and we are partnering with the best growers around Central and South America to ensure we maintain close relationships to our customers,” Pereira Gallego said.
“We will continue to create new opportunities to offer new products into new regions at the best prices.”
Terra Exports says that it plans to consolidate this division to attend customers needs around the world and help the growers to improve their productions.
In October last year the company opened up an office in South Africa, amid expected strong growth in horticultural exports from there.
