The primary objectives of this research are (1) to determine, in depth, the nature and characteristics of U.S. and Latin American firms engaged in fruit and vegetable trade and (2) to determine, in depth, barriers to trade encountered by these firms. This information should be useful to firms already trading internationally in fruits and vegetables and those looking for international opportunities. The information should provide important insights into the conduct of business operations, and inroads and obstacles to trading fruits and vegetables between Latin America and the United States. Policy makers should also be able to use this information to accommodate smoother trading relations among countries.
