Data from the Foreign Trade Promoter (Procomer) indicate that between January and October of this year, Costa Rican agricultural exports reach $1.8 billion, or 12.04% more than the $1.6 billion recorded for the same period in 2007.
The Costa Rican pineapple sector wants to consolidate the presence it has gained in major international markets.
Colombian MD2 pineapple producers are negotiating with South Korea, Israel and the European Union in order to start exporting the product in 2015.
Malaysian producers plan to start exporting fresh pineapple to China later this year as part of an agreement signed between the two countries in 2013.
The sector expects to increase exports in 2010, and for this they have planted 45.000 hectares.
