International interest

Adoption of the process internationally is a feasible and relatively simple operation, as long as markets are adequately located.

Many central American organisations have shown interest in developing the technology, since many countries and regions, such as El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Southern Mexico, grow the product and have the right natural conditions.

COELMON has taken part in international fairs in Germany, France and the United States, to promote the cooperative’s products and open new markets.

It has received numerous national and international recognitions, including:
