Producers from Yucatan considered the opening of the “Hecho en Yucatán” (Made in Yucatan) online store, within the Mercado Libre platform announced by Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal as an excellent opportunity to position and boost the consumption of local products, in order to generate income and sources of employment for the people in our state.
Artisans and small and medium entrepreneurs highlighted that this initiative promoted by Vila Dosal allows them to open horizons in electronic commerce and at the same time contribute to increase the competitiveness of the local market and raise the quality of services and products.
This willingness of the State Government to have an online store opens a wide range of opportunities especially for young entrepreneurs, since not only can they promote their products in their points of sale, but now they can also do it using technology to reach different parts of the world.
Yucatecan company Gary, which is dedicated to the manufacture of sauces and condiments, has already made its first sale through the “Hecho en Yucatán” online store, on the Mercado Libre platform. They have started selling liquid chamoy for a consumer in Mexico City.
The Yatzil brand, which sells habanero pepper liquor, has marketed its product with customers in Colima, Guadalajara, Campeche and Honduras, through the online platform.
While the firm Cesia Mx, dedicated to the manufacture of handbags, purses, backpacks and other garments with hand-made embroidery and using the cross-stitch technique with innovative designs, pointed out that the “Hecho en Yucatán” online store is definitely an extraordinary option to promote their products and reach customers who do not have the opportunity to travel to Yucatán.
Cesia Mx, has already sold its products in Spain, France, Germany and the United States.
