Key Opportunity in a Fast-Moving Marketplace
With a population of 124 million, and over half the population 27 years of age and younger, Mexico’s burgeoning healthy products market reflects a growing, educated middle class wanting to get healthier. Plus, with the government’s campaign to fight obesity through education, food nutrition laws, the recent junk food tax, and increased access to healthier products, now is the time to enter Mexico. The many new specialty health stores opening in Mexico’s major cities are looking for new, high quality, healthy products for the increasing number of Mexican consumers who are including healthy products in their lifestyle.
“We are proud to celebrate our 5th annual Summit. Over the past five years, this market has grown quickly, with many new companies from all across the world entering it. With healthy food and beverages leading the way, and healthy personal care and beauty products gaining quickly in popularity, the market is gaining the favor of suppliers from everywhere. In addition to our U.S. exhibitors, we have companies from Costa Rica, Chile, Canada, and Mexico. We plan to increase our international presence this year,” said John Pagliaro, President of The Mexican Healthy Product Summit and partner with Trade Show Consulting, LLC, a veteran trade show event producer in the U.S. and Mexico.
Matching Buyers with Suppliers
This year’s 4th Summit, held in January 2017, increased supplier participation by more than 40% over the previous year. Many sales were made as a result of the event, and Pagliaro’s group works throughout the year to assist Summit participants in establishing and furthering long-term relationships for future business growth.
