Mexico is the biggest producer of prickly pears around the world; it surpasses the 350 thousand tons every year so that’s a lot! Though it isn’t your average morning fruit to have at breakfast because most people outside of Mexico barely even know it exists!
Seems like an untapped market for me, and also for a pair of students from the School of Scientific and Technological Studies from the State of Hidalgo, who happen to found a way to extract sugar from said fruit and plan to open a new market segment and import it.
Students Lorena Fuentes Díaz and Lorena Gómez Vázquez developed a peculiar way of getting sugar out of prickly pears while still conserving its natural properties, according to them, for every prickly pear kilogram you can get 140 grams of sugar.
So in general, it is a great option for its complexity, and if that wasn’t enough, this form of sugar works as a good antioxidant enforcer thanks to the Vitamin C, plus it has 67 times less calories than your regular table sugar.
These young women have some very ambitious plans: besides trademarking the method, they want to commercialize the product and it’s already been accepted into the Incubation Center for Technologically-based Companies at the National Polytechnic Institute for further testing.
Mexican investigator Gerardo Ulibarri has designed a method to collect and then destroy zika, dengue and chikungunya virus.
During a 10-month period 18,700 eggs were collected using 84 traps, which were placed in Sayaxche, Guatemala.
Ovillanta is a trap made from a used tire, cut in half and filled with a milk based, pheromone liquid. Afterwards, it’s taken out and then burned to destroy the eggs.
There is a very large amount of used up tires in Guatemala, so for them to be recycled for these traps is very beneficial on its own, but it has a second and very important use as well.
Various areas in Guatemala have shown interest for the ovillantas, same as the south in Mexico where there had been more zika cases. More experiments with these traps are still needed; so far the results are what the experts call “anecdotic” but very promising.
Alsea, the Mexican company that represents and operates the Starbucks brand in Mexico and Latin America, plans a pilot test to sell beer in the coffee shops of the brand.
In the United States wine and beer are already sold at some stores, so Alsea has planned to introduce these products in Starbucks Mexico.
Although this strategy is still being analyzed, it is an alternative that, according to Federico Tejado, CEO of Alsea, could work as long as the pilot shows good results.
The introduction of this product will depend on the response of the consumers in the test to be performed, because if the consumer sees it as something relevant that can represent a relaxed experience for their evenings and nights, because it will be a quiet place you can attend instead of going to a bar, this could be a feasible idea.
Starbucks plans to open 60 new stores during 2016, focusing primarily on shopping centers.
Jeffrey Campbell, the luxury brand specializing in shoes has come to Mexico, through eight Palacio de Hierro stores.
During 2015, the company achieved sales of footwear in volume by one million 600 thousand pairs of shoes, which means a growth of 10% compared to 2014.
The company currently has an international presence in 66 countries, now including Mexico..
The presence in the Mexican market does not have a target defined for the first year sales, as its business model is based on become an option for an exclusive segment of the population, which is made up of persons seeking high quality products, and where the price is not a factor.
They sell exclusivity, offering a different or special product, and said Mexico City currently has a steady economic boom in areas like Polanco, the Roma colony and Santa Fe.
Today, 50% of Jeffrey Campbell shoes sells comes from the United States, and the rest is divided among the other 65 countries.
The brand has more than 500 thousand models, among which there are 700 active, and received the award “Shoe of the Year”, with its model LITA.
