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.

Natural Rubber

Natural rubber suppliers in Colombia are very meticulous. They collect it from the rubber tree (hevea brasiliensis). After making an incision in its bark, a milky substance called latex is obtained. This raw material is collected in a container, and how it is handled afterward depends on its purpose.

Natural Rubber in Colombia has a vast amount of cultivation, which is close to 75,000 Hectares. Meta is the department with the largest area planted with approximately 30,000, followed by Santander with around 12,000 Hectares.

This is a versatile material. It can be kept in liquid form to manufacture products such as gloves, balloons, and condoms. Or it can be converted to its solid form, first as a clot and then as granules (TSR-10), for the production of goods such as tires, shoe soles, hoses, floors, rubber bands, conveyor belts and others.

The rubber in Colombia activity is carried out in 17 departments grouped into 6,600 producers, of which 70% correspond to small producers, and 30% are divided into medium and large producers. Today the raw rubber sector contributes about 17,250 direct jobs and 51,750 indirect jobs to the country's economy for approximately 25 years.

Even though national production still does not cover local consumption, the departments of Santander and Meta have mainly entered international markets such as Chile, Peru, Ecuador, and Venezuela.

Of interest to Colombia, it is planned to advance trade agreements with Brazil. Despite being one of the leading producers in the region, its production is not enough to cover local consumption.

The national government has supported the cultivation of rubber in recent years. In this context, it was included as one of the products contained in the National Alternative Development Plan (Plante). It is offered to locals of 42 municipalities of Caqueta, Guaviare, Putumayo, Meta, Santander, and the south of Bolívar, as an economical alternative in the medium term that guarantees them a minimum income if they voluntarily accept the plans to eradicate illicit crops.
