USSEC recently participated in the business meeting and trade show, GH-100.
USSEC consultant Jorge Martínez escorted a team of sales managers of soybean oil refineries and soyfoods manufacturers to promote their U.S. soybean products at the event in Merida, Mexico.

Two sales managers from two Mexican soybean oil refineries and two soyfoods manufacturers participated in this event working at the USSEC booth and presenting their products in four group meetings and in one-on-one meetings with purchasing managers of HRI companies. The U.S. Soy products promoted were four brands of soybean oils for use for frying in restaurants; one brand of soybean oil fortified with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA); soy beverages; and texturized soybean protein foods. The managers had business meetings with purchasing managers of participating companies such as restaurants and hotels chains in Mexico and Central America.
