Whitefield International helps UK companies connect with Colombia and Colombian companies connect with the UK and works closely with Colombia-based partner consultancy, Globalista, to facilitate this two way trade.

If you are a Colombian company we can help you enter the UK market and find the best partners and distributors to ensure maximum sales for your products. Similarly, through our strategic partnership with Globalista SAS, based in-market in Colombia (Bogotá and Medellin), we can ensure British companies find buyers for their products and achieve optimum sales in this fast-developing South American market.

We have the research capabilities and the corporate and government contacts in both countries to ensure that you find the right partners and that your products reach the right buyers as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

International trade is not easy and requires commitment and purpose. We will ensure that any local partner we identify shows the same desire to sell your products as you do and that through our introductions and guidance you are able to make those essential early decisions to establish a robust sales platform for the long term, be that in the UK or Colombia.

Our staff, all with long experience in exporting and in international trade development, are primed and ready to assist you achieve your goals in the UK and - together with our Globalista partners - in Colombia. Please contact us for an initial, no obligation, discussion.
