After settling a new export deal, Costa Rica is the latest addition to our growing list of export destinations, bringing the total up to 74 countries.
Less than 12 months ago we added Senegal to our list of export destinations. Now, despite the turmoil of a global health crisis, we’ve managed to bring another country into the fold: Costa Rica, Central America.
With a GPD of over $95 Billion, Costa Rica has one of the strongest economies in Latin America. On top of this, it was named the greenest country in the world in 2009. It aims to become totally carbon neutral by 2021.
Our products might be able to help Costa Rica achieve its environmental targets. They can help eliminate single use plastics and encourage recycling. Our ‘Upcycled’ range is made entirely from recycled single use plastics diverted from landfill.
With this new export deal, we’re reminded that the manufacturing sector is still vitally important to the country. Around 20% of the UK GDP comes from the manufacturing sector, in real terms that puts us in the top 10 of manufacturing countries in the world.
Our company director Tony Grimshaw OBE explained:
“People perceive made in Britain as made of top quality, and they’re right about that. As a country we have high standards. Export is a great way for companies to increase their customer base and in the current market conditions it could provide a lifeline for many organisations.”
Our export sales team are always looking out for new opportunities, we aim to continually increase the number of export destinations going forward.
