Opportunity for Honduran Jalapeño Peppers

Due to the high competitiveness of the sector, the country could become the first exporter of the product at a global level.

Monday, April 27, 2009

The sector exports about four containers of jalapeño peppers daily, which generates about 1,500 jobs and 100 producers per hectare.

The president of the National Federation of Cattle Breeders of Honduras (FENAGH), Santiago Ruiz, told Hondudiario.com: "Honduras could be the king of jalapeño pepper production in America and the world due to the competitiveness we have."

In addition, "he explained that the product is exported to England, Germany and the United States. 'I think that this is the sort of thing that should have more initiatives to attract investors to come and transform the Honduran product, giving added value in the country’."
