Costa Rican food products will be on display this week in SIAL Paris 2012, the world’s largest food fair involving some 5,900 companies from 200 countries.

Nine Tico companies are exhibiting, offering: pasta, rice, frozen tubers, pineapple juice, hearts of palm, roasted coffee, canned yuca, sugar substitutes, frozen tropical fruits and canned tuna, the Foreign Trade Promotion Office (PROCOMER) and the Chamber of Exporters of Costa Rica said.

In addition to company stands, the Costa Rica delegation will host a coffee shop. The fair ends Thursday.
