Argentina is a global top producer of agricultural commodities and food products. The agribusiness sector has a strategic impact on Argentina’s economy and has high potential economic growth. The main challenge of the sector is to add value to the production of primary commodities as well as to the manufactured food products where a second or third step of industrialization can be added.
Historically, the country has a long-established local industry of manufacturing farm machinery such as seeders, sprayers, tractors, combines, implements, and other tools that make the sector strong and competitive.
However, products offering savings costs are in great demand, as are those that increase and improve the quality of agricultural machinery. Information technology services and products for the agriculture sector are highly sought-after. There is a potential market for machinery regarding environmentally friendly engines that reduce air pollution, as well as other innovative products in relation to product traceability and bio-economy.
- Argentina’s geographical location in the southern hemisphere allows for counter-season products to be exported to the northern hemisphere.
- Argentina is looking to increase the production of agricultural and food products by adding technology focused on bioeconomy and Agtech.
- Argentina is a leader in food production and is looking to expand its efficiencies and technologies to become a world leader in processed foods.
- Argentina is looking for the latest sustainable technology to assist farmers in the supply chain production to increase productivity and efficiency.
