Vegalab US has announced an exclusive distributor agreement with Fertica Group for its products in Guatemala. Fertica is the only manufacturer of edaphic-TVA process fertilizers in Central America and a leading distributor of plant food.
Vegalab US has granted Fertica exclusive rights to promote, market, and sell its line of bioproducts to farmers in Guatemala. Apart from Guatemala, Fertica also operates in El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama, with total annual sales of $200M.
"We are particularly interested in Vegalab's selection of biopesticides. Biological alternatives to chemical pesticides have attracted much attention here in Guatemala, and we want to provide farmers with the best performing products available," said Julio Martinez, Manager of Fertica for Guatemala.
"We are very excited to have one of Central America's leading distributors of plant protection products partnering with us in our effort to shift the use of chemical pesticides to safer biological pesticides," said Steven Blackburn, Director of Business Development for Vegalab US.
Vegalab US will retain responsibility for product development, quality management, and manufacturing, while Fertica will be responsible for sales, marketing, customer support, and distribution activities in Guatemala.
