MexiCultura mission to Mexico and participation at the AgroAlimentaria

Mexico: High level of professionalism impresses Dutch trade mission

Last week, MexiCultura visited Mexico and participates at the AgroAlimentaria. Several company visits were made in Queretaro, San Luis Potosi and Guanajuato. On Thursday 6 November Hoogendoorn Growth Management (participant of MexiCultura) officially opened their new training offices at the Agroparc in Queretaro. The opening was attended by the new agricultural counselor of the Netherlands Embassy Mr. Jean Rummenie. The new center allows training of growers in irrigation and climate control under Mexican conditions.

Furthermore the MexiCultura group made several visits to top companies in the Mexican industry growing vegetables using different types of greenhouse technology. The central region with high altitude is blessed with a good climate. The export market demands year round, high quality and hygiene standards. Therefor the visited growers operate active greenhouses equipped with irrigation, climate control and heating systems for the cold nights during the winter period and the advantage of supplying CO2 which increases production. The company visits made in the three states are showing that producers continue to invest in growth. And the visits gave a good insight in the big steps that these companies have already made in the last few years. The group was impressed with the high level of professionalism.

During the mission and at the AgroAlimentaria a seminar was organized for the producers of AMHPAC discussing diversification of the market and products, sharing experiences in adapting technology and financing opportunities of horticultural projects in Mexico. The seminars are well attended and in this region we see demand and opportunities for adapted technology.

The mission was organized in cooperation with growers association AMHPAC. In February MexiCultura is inviting Mexican growers for a three day horticultural visit to the Netherlands and two day visit to the Fruit Logistica in Berlin.
