This study, done under the direction of the C225mara de Industrias de Costa Rica, assessed the preparedness of secondary food and timber industries in Costa Rica to export to the green and organic sectors of the European Union private market. We researched the most recognized standards and certifications in Europe, and created two questionnaires based on these regulations. We used the questionnaires to examine several Costa Rican companies, and to gather information about their compliance with green and organic regulations. We also identified gaps between the current practices of the industries and the European standards, and developed recommendations for improvement towards exporting to the European Union in the form of a brochure.
