Important information regarding the contacts and business relationships that you make through the B2B MARKET PLACE, keep in mind that:

  1. PROCOLOMBIA accompanies companies with the purpose of facilitating business opportunities between exporters and buyers, without intervening in purchase and/or sale decisions, therefore, the contractual and legal responsibility of commercial negotiations falls directly on the companies that carried out the commercial transaction (exporter and buyer).
  2. Although PROCOLOMBIA carries out a preliminary investigation of the companies as part of its work methodology and commercial management, this process does not constitute any guarantee of compliance in the negotiations between the parties, for this reason it is recommended that both the exporter and the buyer carry out their own validations and protect their commercial operations with the mechanisms available in international trade regulations.
  3. The relationship between PROCOLOMBIA and the companies in Colombia and abroad, is generated through trust and the experience acquired from previous actions; however, such companies may present situations that could lead to possible breaches, without these being the responsibility of PROCOLOMBIA, which is why both exporters and buyers must ensure that they use secure negotiation tools, seek advice from experts to assess commercial risks and formalize the contractual documents that may be necessary to shield their conversations.
  4. ProColombia will in no case be responsible for the information of the companies and/or products available on this platform since it is filled out completely by each one of the companies.

Food processors in Colombia are very important for the economy and food distribution of the country. The processed food and beverages industry is highly diversified and one of the fastest-growing sectors of the Colombian economy. The country is a leading producer of fruits, vegetables, sugar, cocoa, meat and seafood, and dairy products. Food processing represented nearly 33% of the country’s manufacturing GDP in 2019, and it is the region’s fourth-largest economy with promising steady growth in the agricultural sector.
More than 4.000 establishments dedicated to the production of food. 2.500 of those establishments are located in Bogota and employ 190.000 people. Also, 43% of all international sales in the industry are from Bogota. The increase in demand for processed foods has driven Bogotá to increase its production, becoming the leading food processing region in the country.

According to information from the National Department of Statistics (DANE), Fish farming is a constantly growing market in Colombia and is highly exported worldwide. Products such as fish fillet, fresh fish, and frozen fish are suitable products for export. The main exporting products are fresh and frozen tilapia fillet and trout. In 2018, Colombia became the first supplier of fresh tilapia in the United States and followed the exports to Peru and Canada. In the same year, it entered the market in Iceland due to the benefits of the European Free trade Association (EFTA).
Fish farmers and food processors in the country aim to increase their exports and open new markets abroad. Due to the quality of the products and the compliance provided, Colombia is a promising market for the fish and food processor market.
