USSEC consultant Julio Chaves recently traveled to Nicaragua on an exploratory trip to initiate contacts to provide technical and trade service in that country.
He started with a visit to the Nicaragua Sausage Processors Association (CAPROEN) where he provided information about USSEC and its role in market and technical support. The president of CAPROEN was very attentive and plans to collect requests from the members so that CAPROEN, together with USSEC, can organize training sessions in various aspects of sausage making, according to their needs.
Mr. Chaves also visited the largest sausage plant in Nicaragua, which is planning to increase its production and begin exporting its goods. The plant is in the process of planning to remodel the production building and general facilities and to increase space and cold storage areas. They showed interest in receiving technical service from USSEC.
The consultant next visited the Poultry and Feed Producers Association of Nicaragua to discuss USSEC and its role in market and technical support. The president of the association was interested in receiving USSEC trade service about futures and risk management, technical and feed formulation, and GMO issues to help government authorities to make better decisions about GMO products. They will organize a poultry and feed manufacturing seminar on August 5-6 and would like to receive support from USSEC with some speakers.
