July 25, 2012 - PRLog -- LAC Flavors 2012 Uses My Business Matches Online Business Matchmaking Solution to Match Over 120 Export Companies from Mesoamerica and Haiti

ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA – My Business Matches online business matchmaking solution was used to match more than 120 food-export companies from Mesoamerica and Haiti at the fourth annual LAC Flavors business matchmaking event organized by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in Antigua, Guatemala July 11–13. The exporters had more than 1,200 meetings with 40 potential buyers from the United States, Canada, China, South Korea, and Japan.

This year marked the first time that a prior participant in LAC Flavors graduated from being a seller of products to becoming a buyer. Lizeth Correa, of Colombia, the manager of Tropic Kit, in 2009 exported $250,000 in plantains and lemons to the U.S. Thanks to contacts made at LAC Flavors, her sales jumped to $1.5 million in 2010 as she expanded exports to customers in Canada, the Middle East, and the U.S. Today, Correa has diversified her product line to include 15 different products from Colombia and Ecuador, and she is seeking to expand her pool of suppliers to keep up with orders.

The Costa Rican company Natural Sins also has benefited from the LAC Flavors business matchmaking meetings. The firm, created by entrepreneurs Andrés I. Domínguez and Iván José Sosa, produces naturally dried fruit chips in a creative presentation. ”Our company is young and the opportunity provided by the IDB has accelerated our export process through contacts we made in the business matchmaking meetings with international buyers,” said Domínguez. If current negotiations with a Canadian buyer are successful, the firm will hire 60 new employees to fulfill the order.

"Our clients success stories are our success stories,” said Jeff Vigil, President & CEO. “The achievements of Tropic Kit and Natural Sins are a testament to the power of My Business Matches online business matchmaking solution. There stories inspire our company to provide the same quality business matchmaking to more businesses around the world.”

Future LAC Flavors events are scheduled to take place in Medellín, Columbia and Hangzhou, China.
