Americas Expo, a great success for US poultry exporters

The USAPEEC event, which received sponsorship from the National Turkey Federation (NTF), the USDA, and the United Soybean Board (USB), and support from the Office of Agricultural Affairs of the Embassy of the United States, strengthens relationships between importers from South America, Central America, and the Caribbean and exporters of U.S. poultry and egg products.

The Americas Expo has experienced significant growth since its inception in 2019, making it a true success story. Sponsorships from USAPEEC members Trade Cafe, Bassett and Walker, Lamex, Food Link Group, Globex, APM Terminals, Andes Global, and Quirch, along with funding provided by the NTF, USB, and USDA, helped USAPEEC boost attendance.

In a sign of the show’s impact in the region, U.S. Ambassador to Guatemala Tobin Bradley and USDA Agricultural Counselor Marcella Rondon, attended the show to meet with exhibitors and learn more about their goals and activities in the region. Rondon also delivered welcome remarks highlighting the growth in trade between Guatemala and the U.S. and the goals both countries can work together to achieve.
