2013 Market Expansion Conference

 

December 3 & 4, 2013

Sheraton Hotel Convention Center

200 Convention Boulevard, San Juan, PR 00907

Farmers, food producers and processors from throughout Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are invited to attend a Market Expansion Conference to be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico on December 3 and 4, 2013.  At this conference, you will learn from local authorities how to expand your business and sell your products to many markets, including the local school districts in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

This conference is being co-hosted by the Puerto Rico Departments of Agriculture and Education, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and supported by the agricultural and business community, including the Puerto Rico Farm Bureau, the Economic Development Bank for Puerto Rico, the Puerto Rico Department of Economic Development and Commerce, and MIDA.

This conference follows up a very successful one held in June 2011 where seven USDA agencies and state and local agencies provided technical assistance and information to over 250 local farmers and food producers from Puerto Rico.

Since the 2011 conference, there has been increased business between Puerto Rico farmers and food producers with the local school districts as well as an increase in jobs in the farm sector, which is very important to the island’s economy. 

There is no fee to attend the conference, but you need to register if you want to attend.  You may register on-line at the link to the left or call 787-721-5970.

If you have any questions, please email us at MAROSNP-PRConferen@fns.usda.gov or call 787-766-5586.
