Import of Coffee from Costa Rica

Postby Shadou » Wed, 09 Nov 2005 10:51 pm

I have a good friend in Costa Rica who is looking to export Costa Rican Coffee here to Singapore as he is keen on getting into the Singapore market. Currently, he exports to Starbucks in the US and parts of Europe and has just broken into the Indian market as well.

Can anyone direct me to whom I should speak to in regards to any company who would be willing to distribute this coffee in the Singapore market? Any advice or comments are greatly appreciated. Any laws that I should be made aware as well? Thanks for your help.

Can you supply a sample! and price!

Branding is very important along with taste, and marketing! But if the product is good it may be feasible, When it comes to beverages Countries have there own ideas of what they want in a coffee.

There is a lot of research to do, and that costs money, is your friend willing to contribute to the costs and marketing. Tell me why we should sell his product, and pay for the costs of research and marketing!

We have the sales channel, So if you can get a sample to us, then pm me
