Breakthrough trade mission to Brazil 2014

Santander news

Breakthrough's latest Trade Mission to Brazil – organised by Santander with the support of UK Trade & Investment – gave six UK business leaders the opportunity to meet contacts face-to-face. The six-day trip took place in the cities of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, where delegates were given the freedom to explore the export opportunities on offer within one of the world's most dynamic markets. They returned home having not only struck deals, but also received the information and contacts required to carry out their trade ambitions to the full. The six delegates chosen to join the Trade Mission represented businesses offering a broad range of products and services. CaféPod (CEO Peter Grainger) makes coffee capsules for the Nespresso system. Copylab (MD Ross Hunter) provides writing and editing services to clients including BlackRock and Aegon. CorDEX Instruments (owner Gary Copeland) manufactures explosion-proof inspection and imaging devices. Huub Design (founder Dean Jackson) makes wetsuits and triathlon clothing. Tower Transit (Chairman Neil Smith) provides road and marine transport services. And Unique Secure (Sales Director Gordon Frewin) provides smart device payment systems. John Williams, Head of Breakthrough at Santander, believes Brazil is a natural choice for British companies looking to broaden their business horizons. 'Brazil has a strong industrial, business and consumer base, which presents immense potential for SMEs planning to expand or export into this South American country,' he said.
