Pompano Beach, Fla.-based CarbAmericas Inc. is exporting more Peruvian asparagus to Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan and other markets.
However, one of its fastest-growing export customers is Brazil, said Jeff Friedman, president.
Brazil is growing so fast, in fact, that the company is toying with the idea of opening a division there —
“It’s a booming country with big population and a strong economy,” Friedman said. “It just seems to be working for us.”
CarbAmericas has two salespeople there. The first started about three years ago, the second in the spring of this year.
In addition to asparagus, the company exports apples, pears, stone fruit, garlic and onions to Brazil.
