    Have growers... How to bring to the US?

    Hello group, I am fortunate enough to speak Spanish fluently, and have personal connections to growers in Guatemala. I want to start importing into the US. What seems to be the preferred method? I would start in smaller quantities then graduate up. Any feedback as to modes of transportation (truck through Mexico? barge and container from Guatemala to a port here?) would be deeply appreciated. Thank you!

    I have done some preliminary digging into this myself. Have farmer in Mexico who expressed the same interest. Have heard too many bad scenarios vs good in trying to make this happen if the relationship with the farm is not well established, and even with the established relationships, import brokers are usually brought into the mix to avoid any speculation of illegal traffic from government agencies. I realize this is not overly helpful. Perhaps a more tenured member has better advice.
