METCO®, a based alternative sweetener manufacturer from Mexico, entered the San Antonio market in May 2014 through the International Business Development Center (IBDC) of Free Trade Alliance San Antonio. METCO® is only the second IBDC client to use e-commerce to fuel its international expansion efforts.
“We are very pleased at this new thrust by METCO®. The international e-commerce expansion for companies like METCO® shows that the IBDC Program has the capabilities to prepare companies to expand in the international market”, said Melina Gomez, International Trade Specialist and Director of the Alliance’s IBDC program. Gomez added that in order for a company to successfully do e-commerce they must understand the local business customs, customer preferences and cultural differences. “These affect everything from marketing strategies to inventory management,” she said and added that the IBDC program gives the foreign company exactly that kind of understanding and prepares them to successfully operate in the US market. Villanueva said that METCO® is delighted with its partnership with Free Trade Alliance San Antonio and the IBDC program. “The Alliance has been a solid partner in our US expansion efforts and continues to support us in this new phase of our operations,” she said.
