Leading International Opportunity in a Fast-Moving Marketplace
With a population of more than 124 million, and over half the population 25 years of age and younger, Mexico’s rapidly growing healthy products market reflects a growing, educated middle class wanting to get healthier. Plus, with the government’s campaign to fight obesity through education, new food nutrition laws, the recent junk food tax, and increased access to healthier products, now is the time to enter Mexico.
Healthy food and beverages, vitamins and supplements are leading the way, and healthy personal care and cleaning products are quickly gaining in popularity. The Mexican retail sector wants new, high quality, healthy products to sell. As many new specialty health stores open up in the major cities and elsewhere, more Mexican consumers are choosing healthy products.
