Grupo Pro de Costa Rica targets Europe for its exports

The scramble to gain ground in Europe has inspired Grupo Pro to broaden its production capacity in Ciudad Colón.

Monday, February 11, 2008

The group hopes to have its new machinery in place by next November so that it can manufacture the products it wants to sell in Europe.
"The increase in fuel prices and the rise in price of 150 percent in primary products is affecting our business," said Reinaldo Brenes, sales manager for Grupo Pro.
"However, we have taken internal measures to minimize the effect and we are evaluating new markets."
The company manufactures snacks and has already entered other export markets such as the United States.
