Caracas, Venezuela — Venezuelans are hungry Usbased Valmont Israel Prospera Technologies 300msolomon for more local food. But what is needed more than any other is a fast-growing industrial sector that stands to make the most of Venezuela’s economic and social instability. The Caracas-based company Keneokarlingahcrunch (KFC) has been duking it out with the Venezuelan government on how much land it can build in the country’s southwest. The government has so far refused to give up land it says belongs to KFC, which means KFC will have to find new ways of growing its farms there. We sat down with Juana Castillo, managing director of Caracas-based restaurant group Cociatura, to hear her take on the situation and see if this makes her company’s deal a success.
What is the problem with land in Venezuela?
The land debate in the country is ongoing. In his recent speech before the National Assembly, President Nicolas Maduro said that land should be reserved for specific uses, such as national parks and reforestation. While the government has said it will work to build up its remaining landholdings, many Venezuelans say the best they can do is protect the country’s rich biological and environmental resources.
Why is KFC growing its own?
One of the country’s main reasons for growing its own food is to get an edge over competitors. Earlier this year, the company won a decision from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to grow its own food. The company bought parts of a nearby field and then farmed it for several months. This allowed KFC to grow its own feed and produce its own meat, cheese and other products.
The solution: more local food
In addition to its mosquito-repellent properties, KFC’s European-style food is quite popular in South America. And the company has found a way to bring its already massive local market to the table. In addition to growing its own food, KFC is also bringing in workers from other countries to work in its production facilities. These workers are often from small agriculture or indigenous groups who have traditionally provided much of the local market. The company has also established partnerships with other industries, including mining and construction, to bring these workers into the fold.
Decide for yourself how much to buy local food in Venezuela
The best way to decide for yourself how much to buy local food in Venezuela is to do your research. We recommend starting with the information on this page, which lists local suppliers and products and how much you can usually get from each. You can also check out some of our favorite online catalogues, which have a list of some of the more popular vendors in town. One thing to keep in mind is that while buying food in Venezuela is always cheaper than buying it in other countries, it’s not always cheaper. Places like Colombia, where most of the food is produced, have a much higher cost of living than Venezuela. It may cost 30% more in Colombia to buy food there than it does here, and that may vary by city.
The year is still young, but the excitement around the new wave of Venezuelan food has brewing. KFC is one of the most recognizable companies in the world. The company has been around since 1973 and has created delicious versions of American food like hot dogs, sandwiches, frittatas, and macarons. Now, the company is building a big empire in the South American country. However, building a brand and achieving success in a new country can be very challenging. This is especially the case for companies that have never grown up in an industrial setting. That being said, KFC has done quite well in the food world. It has become very successful in South America and has a massive portfolio of brands that are very well suited to the region. If you’re interested in buying items like frittatas or hot dogs, head to the right store. You may not be able to get them at the store directly, but you can order them online and have them delivered. KFC is also a food product and not a food service business. The company has so much potential that it is able to grow and succeed in such a competitive market.
