FAS/San Jose collaborated with three Cooperators to highlight U.S. products tailored to Costa Rican food service demand at ExpHoRe - the largest trade show in Costa Rica targeting the hotel and restaurant sector. The more than 200 exhibitors at the show were looking to capitalize on a strong recovery in tourism and nearly $400 million of planned tourism development in Northwestern Costa Rica. U.S. exports of consumer-oriented food and beverage products to Costa Rica in 2023 likely exceeded the 2022 record level of $420 million.
