This is GROW's second in-person conference since March 2020 following relaxation of COVID related travel restrictions. AMHPAC is the trade organization for Mexico's greenhouse and protected ag growers who collectively operate 54,150 Ha's (approximately 6 billion square feet) of grow facilities. AMHPAC represents 380 Mexican vegetable growers who export 90% of Mexico's vegetable produce. Mexico is the second largest protected ag market in the world.
Previous AMHPAC CONGRESS Summary
"Managing to bring together more than 500 participants in our last edition held in Ensenada, Baja California, among which were representatives of 50 farmers with a presence in 23 states of the country. We bring together more than 50 input and technology companies that participate in a commercial area. We also received national representatives and representatives from the United States, Canada, Holland, France, United Kingdom, Chile and Sweden. This resulted in more than 60 matchmaking meetings between producers and 17 marketers, mainly from the United State and Canada."
Rancho Nexo Principal, Matt Grant, commented, "Being a member of AMHPAC is an important show of commitment by CO2 GRO to the Mexican protected ag market. We have been working with our team in Mexico to develop a coherent strategy for penetrating the market. Part of this strategy is attending the AMHPAC CONGRESS, which also gives our team in Mexico the opportunity to meet with GROW team members in person. Prior to the AMHPAC congress, Rancho Nexo will be sending a team to the GreenTech Americas Conference as well. We are committed to building the CO2 Delivery Solutions™ brand and technology roll-out in Mexico, and these conferences are integral to us meeting with potential customers."
According to Aaron Archibald, VP Sales & Strategic Alliances, "Joining AMHPAC and exhibiting at its annual congress are further commitment steps into Mexico's vast 6 billion square foot protected agriculture market. Working with our Mexican partner, Rancho Nexo, we look forward to accelerating the introduction of our CO2 Delivery Solutions™ technology. The Mexican protected ag market is a key focus of our sales and marketing initiatives going forward due to the size of the market, its proximity and close relations with Canada and the US, as well as the fact that the vast majority of facilities in Mexico cannot utilize CO2 with traditional application methods due to the hot climate."
