“Port Manatee to get first shipment of Colombian coffee since 1993″
Bradenton Herald July 26, 2016
Two Colombian coffee companies want to gain U.S. market share through a relationship with Port Manatee. Combined, Bunland and Monte Cielo will ship 2,200 pounds of coffee to Port Manatee at the end of August.
The companies began their relationship with the port through the International Trade Hub. Marina Besadalombana, trade hub consultant, and Ivan Mutis, trade hub consultant and coordinator, said they have conducted market tests and research to determine the level of interest in the type of coffee these companies will bring.
