The Municipality of La Chorrera will be hearing offers from private companies interested in operating a meat processing plant in the municipality through a joint venture.
In order to prevent the closure of the plant, municipal authorities are assessing creating a joint venture with a private company interested in operating the slaughterhouse, which because it does not have a treatment plant can only sell processed meat within the province. Spokespeople for the municipality indicated that so far "... they have received four proposals from companies interested in forming a joint venture."
Food manufacturers have a period of three years to comply with the rule requiring the elimination of artificial saturated fats from processed foods.
From a statement issued by the Embassy of Taiwan in Guatemala:
The Food and Administration (FDA) reported on 7 August that following the latest changes in the United States eliminating artificial saturated fats in processed foods, food manufacturers will be given a period of three years to comply with the standard and eliminate these substances from their products.
A new law eliminates the period of 150 days for the authorities to respond to an import request, and requires wait for the process to be completed without being able to import the food, until they have received a response.
The newly approved law only needs sanctioning or a presidential veto and aims to prevent the importation of agricultural products in the seasons when those products are being harvested in the country. However, the Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture does not approve of all of the items included in the law.
This year the food producer plans to invest $50 million in its operations in Nicaragua, $20 million in Honduras and between $10 and $15 million in Costa Rica.
In Nicaragua the company will invest in building two plants and strengthening its distribution center, in Costa Rica it will be investing in improving logistics systems and in Honduras resources will be used for renewal of equipment. Additionally, in Costa Rica it plans to renew its distribution fleet, installing a water treatment plant and carry out improvement works in the cooling system of the plant in San Rafael de Alajuela.
Grupo Calvo is preparing to start exporting to Russia in the first half of the year and plans to invest $3 million in improvements to its plants in El Salvador.
The tuna company is also aiming to increase its exports to England, Germany, Vietnam and Belgium. It also plans to diversify its offerings in the food sector, moving into production and marketing of spicy sauces and seasonings. It is expected that in April the new products will be available to consumers.
