Sedano's shoppers will also have the opportunity to enter a contest to win tickets to attend the IndyCar Series Championship Finale at the Homestead-Miami Speedway Complex held on October 10th. The promotion and contest will run everyday leading to the Championship race, from September 28 to October 10; limited weekend sampling will continue through November 8.
"Our promotion with Sedano's Supermarkets is a great opportunity for Brazilian food producers to showcase the exotic tastes and high quality of Brazilian foods and to reach Sedano's shoppers who are accustomed to Latin cuisine," said Raquel Salgado, President, Brazilian Food and Beverage Association. "We are pleased that the first weekend was a success and to extend the promotion to allow more people to taste the food over additional days."
"We chose the South Florida market for this promotion because it is one of the most multicultural in the world and the people here are very open to trying new foods and tastes. We are also proud to partner with Sedano's as we introduce new products to the U.S. market," said Raquel Salgado.
The promotion launched on September 26 with a kick-off sampling event at the Sedano's in Pembroke Pines. IndyCar Series Driver EJ Viso was in attendance signing autographs and taking pictures with fans, one of whom could win a chance to see him race in October.

The Brazilian Association of Food and Beverage Exporters and Importers was created eight years ago with the mission of defending the interests of small- and medium-sized food and beverage companies. One of its main characteristics is to open up channels and develop business opportunities for its associate members, in order to expand and encourage international trade of their products.
With this goal in mind, it creates and implements commercial projects that are excelling due to the creation of opportunities for Brazilian companies abroad. It supplies companies with legal information and tools for exporting in potential consumer markets, giving them all the support needed to comply with the requirements of the external market. Similarly, A.B.B.A. also works on behalf of its food and beverage import partners, giving them all the necessary updates on the regulations in effect in Brazil, as well as legal and market support to enable them to obtain the performance expected from the products imported, which produces a positive impact on the Brazilian market.
