Two-day Sourcing Fair by COTTON USA in Lima
14
Apr '11
To strengthen sales of U.S. cotton yarns and fabrics to the region, the COTTON USA Sourcing Program brought together seven U.S. mills, 15 Latin American and European retailers, and 47 Andean, Central American and Mexican apparel manufacturers for a two-day Sourcing Fair in Lima, Peru, April 28, 2011.

Attendees held private meetings to discuss business opportunities that would move U.S. cotton yarns and fabrics through the regional supply chain. Close to 700 individual meetings took place.

The event included a conference session with a panel of experts who addressed textile and apparel trade issues such as an overview of textile and apparel agreements between Latin America and Europe; a review of the current cotton price situation; a discussion of Western Hemisphere textile and garment industry capabilities; and sourcing requirements for European brands & retailers.

The event enabled overseas buyers to meet all segments of the Western Hemisphere supply chain in one location. This streamlined approach to sourcing reinforced existing business relationships and fostered new relationships between U.S. mills, their Latin American customers, and downstream buyers from their region and from Europe.

The timing of the Sourcing Fair was excellent since European brands and retailers have recently gained interest in sourcing opportunities from Latin America as increased costs in Asia and political uncertainties in North Africa have strained usual supply channels. European and Latin American regional sourcing is positive for U.S. cotton and cotton yarn and fabric since goods sourced in the Western Hemisphere are a high percentage U.S. fiber.

Cotton Council International activities are designed to expand international markets for customers who use U.S. cotton and cotton products. Events in all corners of the globe promote the quality, durability and prestige of products and brands that contain U.S. cotton and cotton products. Our COTTON USA Advantage partners and these activities help make CCI's mission a reality.
