Bienvenidos to Panama! USHBC conducted the first trade mission and expositon to the Republic of Panama March 27-30, 2019 in Panama City. For the past five years, we have met dozens of Panamanian companies at expositions in Miami. Food companies in the region including baking, confectionery and snacks are seeking Real Blueberries and this year Blueberry FoodTech hopped the short flight to Panama for a look!
Commercial bakeries in the region look to use frozen blueberries in muffins and other items.
Dried blueberries work in the snacking culture.
Purees and puree concentrate is desired for ice creams and sorbets. Panamanians are crazy for ice cream, especially in the heat of the April Summer where the temperatures soar to 90s and high humidity!
The USHBC Strategic directs marketing and promotional activities to seek out new high value markets! While most activities continue in the Asian markets, it is time to look close to home in the Central American market.
Adios from Panama!
