Supporting our distributor at The Fedepalma Conference 2015

22/10/2015

Last month we were enjoyed attending the 18th Conferencia Internacional sobre Palma De Aceite (Fedepalma), held in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.

We were there to support our Colombian distributor, Herramientas Palmeras, whose  stand in the Fedepalma exhibition was a focal point to meet both customers and friends, old and new.  Despite our limited Spanish (!) we enjoyed helping out on the stand and found it a good chance to learn how the Palm Oil and seed production markets in Colombia are faring.

It also gave the chance for us to build our relationship with the fantastic Herramientas team, including some team members we didn’t become acquainted with on our last visit.  Their focus on excellent customer service and selling top quality products is a great fit with the approach that PBS International takes to business.

Most importantly, we used the time together to identify some new opportunities, helping us serve our customers in Colombia better, and to develop some new products for the Latin American market in conjunction with both Herramientas and our shared customers.

A visit to Cartagena is always a pleasure, although yet again time was limited to see any of the beautiful world heritage site old town.  We’ll just have to come back again another time!
