GRUPO Irex will enter the baby food market with the introduction of a new product. The Costa Rican company, which produces a variety of food products including juices, canned foods, nectars and jelly, is now launching a new fruit puree for babies under the Agu brand. Del Tropico, which Irex bought in 2004 and produces canned fruits and other canned products, will manufacture the new product. The baby food item will be marketed from the end of the month.
