Question: I live in Canada and am seeking a business relationship with a Cuban firm that can supply me with Biofertilizers and Biostimulants for import to Canada.
Answer: To explore the possibility of importing agriculturally-based products from Cuba, there are two options:
• Contact the Cuban Cámara de Comercio (Chamber of Commerce), or
• Contact the commercial counsellor at the Cuban Embassy within your country.
The Chamber of Commerce has a website at www.camaracuba.cu but it appears to exist only in Spanish. On the left hand side of the home page, under Información (Information), there is a section entitled Para negociar con Cuba (To do business with Cuba). On this page are listed the different steps, as well as an email address where one can obtain more information – [email protected]
The full contact information for the Cámara de Comercio is listed below:
