Leaders from Mexico’s government and agribusiness visit GrubMarket while in California.

The Mexican Consulate in San Francisco recently organised a delegation of senior government representatives and company executives to meet with leading Bay Area businesses, including GrubMarket. In order to explore potential strategic alliances and opportunities for trade, cooperation, and investment at the state and municipal levels, representatives of state governments, municipal authorities, mayors, and business leaders were invited to participate in a dynamic trade mission that was created.

During the visit in March, GrubMarket was pleased to host Mr. Besai Arizmendi, the general manager of top produce exporter Frutos con Sabor a Mexico, as well as Ms. Elvira Daniel and Ms. Mariana Trejo on behalf of Mexico’s Secretary of State for Commercial Affairs, as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Mexico is a crucial ally of the United States, and there has been extensive cooperation between the two nations in many fields over the years. The food and agriculture industries, however, stand out as an especially promising area for future collaboration. Mexico is one of the world’s top makers of agricultural goods, and the sector is expected to expand significantly over the next few years.

Similar to how GrubMarket has made a name for itself as a leader in the global food supply chain business, it is a major supplier of produce from Mexico and South America to the United States. For this delegation to explore the future of agribusiness innovation and collaboration, we were a natural partner due to our sector expertise and stellar image as a technology enabler and digital disruptor.

We showed the delegation around one of our cutting-edge warehouse facilities, which is over 100,000 square feet in size, during the tour. We also talked about how the U.S. and Mexico are becoming more interested in trade and investment, with a particular emphasis on how to improve economic ties between the two nations by working together more on food supply and industry digitization.

Our CEO Mike Xu said, “We were thrilled to have such distinguished guests from the Mexican government and business communities visit GrubMarket in the San Francisco Bay Area. They met with key members of our team and learned more about GrubMarket’s enormous impact on the global food supply chain. There is a huge opportunity for us to work with our partners in Mexico to bring more high-quality fresh food across the border to the U.S. as GrubMarket continues on its mission to be a technology-enabler and digital transformer for the entire food industry.

During our conversation, the Mexican delegation expressed their desire to support GrubMarket’s efforts to source a wider range of products from Mexican farmers, establish business relationships with local governments in various Mexican states, and provide traditional and offline wholesale distributors in Mexico with GrubMarket’s top-tier software technology platform in order to transform them into more contemporary eCommerce companies. We are eager to carry on the encouraging dialogue and observe how this partnership develops for the crucial food industry in the ensuing years. Due to our ongoing efforts to affect positive change throughout the complete food supply ecosystem, this visit serves to further solidify GrubMarket’s position as one of the most significant food technology companies in the world
