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-supplying regions in the international market. While its grain exports are catching up with those of the United States, its market for the exportation of fresh fruit and vegetables is expanding from North America and Europe to Asia. Entities that are producing these agricultural products consist of modern innovative farmers that are expanding the scale of production all by utilizing outside resources, introducing cutting-edge technologies, and adapting corporate-style management. The objective of this research project is to delve deeper into the management innovations being used and how such will continue to shape food suppliers in Latin America into global food suppliers in the 21st century.
