These executives were accompanied by around ten horticultural wholesalers from the city’s wholesale market. The Peruvian delegation wanted to learn more about the Complementary Activities Zone (ZAC) and the structure and activities of the companies that are located within this space, which endeavour to provide added value to the product and client service, since they hope to construct an area with similar characteristics in the new wholesale centre that is being built in Lima.
As a typical example of a ZAC company, they visited Patatas Bonet, a potato packaging and distribution firm.
