The general manager of the company's Perry branded cold meats and sausages, Juan José Herrera, indicated that the procedures required by Costa Rican authorities had been completed and the Cargill is awaiting authorization to begin exporting.
The company exports sausages, cheese, and yogurt from its three plants in Costa Rica to the rest of Central America
Joining dairy products and eggs, now Sausages and Cold Meats from El Salvador are not allowed to enter Honduras.
As with the case of beef with other countries, Honduras has placed phytosanitary restrictions on 20,000 pounds of sausage from Nicaragua, which is being disputed by exporter Delmor S.A.
At least ten companies are competing in a market where the amount of tons sold between 2008 and 2013 grew by 24%.
