Slowly but steadily ALA perceives a greater interest from foreign companies wanting to do business in Brazil again, after leaving behind a period of 3 years of economical and political turbulance. In this article we share a short extract of current projects which Access Latin America is executing for companies wishing to start and further develop activities in Brazil. From the selection of local thrustworthy partners, to generating meeting with high government officials to playng a key role in international trade processes.
Time and time again, enterpreneurs confirm that doing business in Brazil is a challenge. Thanks to many years of experience we have, other trade consultants often approach us to help them out on the complex Brazilian market. This was also the case when a consultant recently called us to help out with a client that is specialized in production process advisory. They managed to get two projects in the Sao Paulo region. Now we started an extensive and detailed partner selection to find the best possible local partner that can assist them in the implementation of these projects. Our effort resulted in a qualitative short list of high potentials. In January we will plan the first conference calls.
For a Dutch company specialized in employment software ALA has organized in 2017 two meetings at the Brazilian Ministry of Work. In May 2017 ALA organized a first introductory meeting with high officials of the Ministry and in October 2017 a workshop for various departments of the Ministry took place. ALA is now in the process of organizing the next step at the Ministry which is the execution of a pilot project.
ALA has been sourcing Brazilian producers of organic food products. In accordance with the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA), Brazil has currently about 16,000 registered organic food producers. These numbers tend to grow and thus Brazil will establish itself as world supplier nr 1 in this market. In June 2017 the Bio Brazil Fair / Bio Fair Latin America gathered 420 exhibitors and over 25,000 visitors proving the growing interest of suppliers and clients. ALA will be of high value to interested foreign clients and importers through its experience with assisting Brazilians producers with their export activities.
