Big Storm Brewing, along with the Global Tampa Bay team, are in Santiago, Chile currently for an export sales mission. As one of our Gold Key companies, Big Storm will participate in one-on-one meetings with potential buyers during the trip.
The Chile economy offers local companies significant trade opportunities due to its open market policies, zero tariffs, stable democratic government, solid business practices and low corruption. Chile was Florida’s third largest merchandise export in 2017, with Florida representing about 27 percent of Chile’s total U.S. imports. During the first five months of 2018, U.S. exports to Chile are up 13 percent over the same period last year.
Bay News 9 caught up with the brewery before the trip to find out more about their expectations and why they decided to take this leap.
