The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is co-sponsoring a trade mission to Colombia in September and is taking applications for participation from Florida or Georgia agricultural producers.
The Colombia Outbound Trade Mission will focus on Bogota between Sept. 14-17, according to a news release.
The tour will include one-on-one meetings with pre-screened companies in Colombia that are interested in imports.
It is designed to capitalize on the recent free-trade agreement with the South American country.
The Southern United States Trade Association will reimburse hotel expenses as well as provide up to $500 to send samples. Participants are responsible for their own airfare. SUSTA also will provide translation services.
