Strengthening your capabilities to successfully export to Canada


DRC Trading Assistance Manager, Jaime Bustamante, was one of the guest speakers for a web-based training seminar series titled: Strengthening your capabilities to successfully export to Canada. The well-attended webinars were organized by PROMEXICO, the Department of Global Affairs Canada and the Trade Facilitation Office of Canada.

The web-based training seminars were held on February 21st and 24th and March 8th, 2017 with an audience that included government representatives, growers, shippers and students. The seminar was designed for attendees to garner detailed information on access requirements and competitive advantages that help make a product successful in the Canadian market.

Topics covered included an overview of the Canadian market for fresh fruit and vegetables, distribution channels, practical advice and tips, financing tools, food safety and certification requirements. Another interesting topic broached was: Understanding social responsibility and the role of women.  Jaime was on hand to represent DRC and provide an overview of the corporation’s role in the industry and services it offers.
