Cuban company recovers presence of its products in foreign market

Ciego de Avila, Cuba, Apr 11 (Prensa Latina) The agro-industrial company Ceballos, in this central Cuban province, recovers the presence of its products in the international market, mainly habanero chili (hot bell pepper) and charcoal.

Located in the center of Ciego de Avila, the entity for the first time began exporting hot bell pepper puree to Europe and Canada, its traditional customers, the company’s director, Exnier Gonzalez, said.

He pointed out that with the new product, they close the production cycle since they can take advantage of up to 40% of the harvest because sometimes the fruit does not meet the essential requirements for sales abroad.

After four years of non-compliance with the exportable plan, the directors and workers of DCballos, the entity’s commercial firm, have the strong purpose of increasing the offers to its main markets and expect to exceed 20 million pesos at the end of the first semester, he said.

He explained that in addition to habanero chili and charcoal, DCballos also exports fresh fruits and industrialized products such as mango puree.

The Avila-based company will increase planting areas of the vegetable and will promote it as a strategic product, in the coming year, to meet the high demand for hot peppers in the markets of Canada, France, and the Netherlands, where prices range between 2,000 and 2,900 dollars per ton.

DCballos is well known in the foreign market for its exclusive chili bell pepper production, which had achieved remarkable growth levels before the Covid-19 pandemic.
