The study was based on surveys to 52 companies operating in this industry, and some of the findings include that 78% of the sector is made up by small and medium companies, which require industrial and administrative technology to develop attractive permanent deals.
To lower the costs of their supplies, businesses in the Free Port zones of Costa Rica are expanding the productive chain to include local suppliers.
Business chains represent a new development model that is being adopted in rural Guatemala. Promoters say it can do more to build prosperity than any political or government mechanism.
In a transaction worth approximately $24 million, Grupo Mundial sold 100% of Prodenvases to Grupo Comeca from Costa Rica.
Eleven clusters are operating in Costa Rica, in sectors ranging from digital animation to flowers, food or agricultural products, seeking better operating and financial leverage.
