Food Show PLUS! Services

  • Introductions to qualified buyers
    • Food Tech Summit (FTS) Mexico is the most relevant ingredients show in Latin America due to the size of the food processing base in Mexico. In 2017, FTS Mexico received over 13,000 food industry executives, 90% of which were purchasing decision makers. Food Export's In-Market Representative (IMR) will take advantage of this situation and as they become present in the pavilion, introductions will be made. In addition, the IMR will reach out with exhibiting importer/distributor to invite the executives of business to come meet the USA companies at their booths.  
  • Targeted invitations to buyers
    • Participant’s brochure will be sent in Spanish to the IMR's entire database. The brochure will be part of an HTML invitation that will be sent through email. The invitation will promote the visit to the pavilion and will also invite buyers to request a specific time and date for a one on one business meeting.
  • Dedicated interpreter/ assistant at your booth during show hours
    • The IMR will contract interpreters (who can serve as booth assistants). If additional “demonstrators” need to be contracted then that can be arranged, but companies will be responsible for paying the demonstrators directly in cash.
  •  Market briefing by local USDA, Foreign Agricultural Service
    • Coordination with the local FAS-USDA offices for the presentation of a market brief. This market brief will also include a presentation of the current labeling regulations affecting retail food products. A question and answer session will be possible.
  • On-site show assistance by Food Export's In-Market Representative
    • IMR staff will be at all times at the booths, during setup and during the trade show for any need that participating companies might have.
  • Post-show lead qualifications
    • The IMR will be able to interact with the USA company and to revise the list of prospects obtained during the trade show to make recommendations. [Recommendations from IMR are based in opinions and recent experiences with the companies recommended. Each company representative is fully responsible to judge business engagement.]

Additional Services ($50 per selection, no cap on number of services): 

  • Professional translation of marketing material into Spanish (up to two pages)
    • Translation of brochures or spec sheets into Spanish. If the information is provided in high resolution PDFs or similar, it will be possible to deliver in the same format. This service does not include design.
  • Personalized follow-up assistance with your top prospects after the show
    • After the show, the IMR will be able to write or translate a follow up letter for the use of the US participating company.

Food Export will be offering its Food Show PLUS! tradeshow enhancement service at Food Tech Summit & Expo. Mexico’s processed food imports for 2015 were US$9.4 billion, with 63% imported from the U.S. Mexico has a strong food processing industry in which leading Mexican brands like Bimbo, PepsiCo, Lala, and Nestle amongst others have a well-developed national distribution network that is well positioned in the market and enjoys high brand awareness with consumers who are very loyal despite economic variations.

Key market drivers for the food processing sector include an increasing interest in healthy foods across all age groups as well as increasing demand of organic foods and natural ingredients. There is also increased demand for convenience foods and prepared meals, due to the growth of urban cities and more women entering the work force. There is also more demand for gourmet and more sophisticated food products. Consumers are looking for new food experiences and are open to trying more exotic flavors and ethnic foods.
