“Exports have been steady,” said Bruce Fishbein, partner. “To be able to get credit these days is very hard. It’s rough for many of our customers to get credit and they have to go through some strict credit terms. We want to make it to where we won’t get hurt.”
Walter Vazquez Jr., chief executive officer of Miami-based Freedom Fresh LLC, agrees export sales remain consistent.
“The export market is very seasonal and really depends on the U.S. economy and how we’re doing,” he said. “Export sales are very tourist-oriented.”
Freedom Fresh distributes throughout the Caribbean, Vazquez said.
