The latin american food industry made its big debut in the first trade show for food, beverage and trends in the region. San Miguel was one of the main exhibitors.
More than 350 buyers from around the world gathered for 3 days at Buenos Aires for the first edition of Aliment.AR: an international trade show that seeks to promote exports from the region, opening up new business opportunities to markets around the world.
We proudly took part in this historic event, together with other 300 Latin American companies. Over the course of the trade show, we participated in the talk “Agribusiness and opportunities in international markets,” with Lucas Méndez Trongé, Sustainability and Institutional Relations Director, representing the company. During the talk, he explained the highlights of our strategy as a multi-origin export company and stressed the importance of sustainability and quality throughout our value chain.
Marcos Renard, Regional Processed Food Manager for Latin America, one of San Miguel's team members at Aliment.AR, shared his view on this exhibition: “I believe that the fair is a very good environment to learn about the economies and trends in the region; to contact new customers and encorauge new regional markets to open up, one of the core issues we are working on as a company.”
The trade show created a turnover of over 300 million dollars in four days. San Miguel celebrates this initiative. We believe this first experience at Aliment.AR was an excellent opportunity to build a platform that connects the large food producers of our region with potential buyers. We intend to contribute all our knowledge and experience as a leader in the region to create new opportunities and continue expanding the scope of exports in our Latin American points of origin: Argentina, Uruguay and Peru.
On another hand, the National Ministry of Agribusiness awarded us the certification “Alimentos Argentinos, una elección natural" (Argentine Food, a natural choice), a recognition to the strict quality protocols our fresh lemon production adheres to.
