Representatives of companies from Belgium, Italy, Sweden, England and USA are visiting the country looking for suppliers.
The trade mission is composed of representatives from, among others, Allegro Coffee, Interamerican Coffee, Webcor Geneva and Sandalj Trading Co.
"The visit from the nine representatives, which began last Monday and ends tomorrow, is a great opportunity for coffee producers of the five northern departments to open new markets and expand marketing of their coffee,” reported Laprensa.com.ni.
The project is expected to benefit 5.500 small and medium coffee growers from the country's north.
Dubbed 'Access to specialty coffee markets', the project will provide technical support to improve coffee production.
"Specialty coffees, also known as differentiated, include 'gourmet' coffee, 'just market' coffee, and other varieties like the winners of the Cup of Excellence award. Most of these coffees are from the high-altitude areas of 'Las Segovias', where 180.000-200.000 quintals of 'Golden' grain are produced, representing 13% of the country's total exports", explained journalist Ervin Sánchez in Elnuevodiario.com.ni.
CISA Exportadora is a green coffee exporting company based in Nicaragua owned by the Baltodano family who enjoys over 100 years of coffee tradition.
