Global food Suppliers in Latin America (2018_2_40_002)

Since the turn of the century, the Latin America region has become one of the most important food suppliers in the international market. While its grain exports are catching up with those of the United States, its exports of fresh fruit and vegetables are expanding their markets from North America and Europe to Asia. The producers of these agricultural products are modern innovative farmers who are expanding their scale of production beyond the limitation of family resources. They actively procure outside resources such as land, capital, labor and technology, and utilize them efficiently. The objective of this research project is to understand their innovations in the management of external resources that will make them global food suppliers in the 21st century.
