FROM THE SOUTH
OF THE WORLD.
Located at the southernmost end of Americas, between parallels 22 and 54, Argentina covers an area
of nearly 290 million hectares - of which 170 are
completely devoted to agricultural production.
Argentina is renowned throughout the world for
the alluring sophistication of tango; the passion
for soccer and the highest quality of the grains and
beef. Due to its geographical area and wire variety
of climate - ranging from subtropical to cold temperature - this land has one of the world`s richest
ecosystems; an ideal place to produce high quality
natural foods. This was the reason why, by the end
of XIX century and the first decades of XX century, it
attracted a massive flow of immigrants: Europeans,
arabs and asians, who settled in different regions of
the country; bringing with them their dreams, traditions and their production and consumption habits.
These diverse idiosyncrasies gave birth to a new culture, which after having undergone difficult problems
and conflicts in now opening up to the world, and it offers its most valued possession: highest quality foods.
Fundación ExportAr is the export promotion agency of the
ArgentineMinistry of Foreign Affair and Worship, dedicated to
increase anddiversify Argentine exports.
Fundación ExportAr comprises the public and private sector,
underan Administrative Board formed by the most outstanding representatives of the Argentine international trade, and
